Bursa Yenişehir Airport, the construction of which was completed in 2000 and the new airport of Bursa, was put into official service in 2001 with the flight code "YEI". At Bursa Airport, which was used as a military airport in the 1940s, due to the lack of a runway suitable for landing and take-off of large-bodied aircraft and the need for a much more modern equipped airport, the military affiliated to the Air Force Command, located 10 kilometers west of Yenişehir district of Bursa. The airport was opened to air traffic in those years. Later, in 1995, parallel to this military airport, a new runway with the status of a civilian airport was started to be built. Thanks to this new airport equipped with modern areas, Bursa has a new airport with an annual capacity of 2,250,000 passengers with its domestic and international terminals. The opening of the airport to international traffic was also realized in the same year. In addition, the cargo building with a closed area of 9,460 square meters and 8 cold rooms was put into service in 2001. Bursa Airport, located in Bursa's Yunuseli district, was closed to air traffic and was handed over to the Air Force Command as before. Located 50 kilometers from the city center, the airport has 3 terminals in total, including domestic, international and cargo terminals. The airport, which is open to flights 24 hours a day, has the "Barrier-Free Airport" and "Green Airport" certificates like many other airports in Turkey.
