More than 105 million people travelled through airports in Turkey between January and July 2017, up from 97.9 million in the same period last year.
As the anniversary of last year's failed coup in Turkey draws near, TRT World tells the stories of heroism displayed on that day. One such story is that of Metin Dogan, who stood up to tanks at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport on July 15.
Turkish Airlines has said that its operations have gone back to normal following end of failed coup attempt, but thousands of people have had their travel plans disrupted.
The 11 foreigners arrested in an early morning raid are suspected of being members of a DAESH cell in Istanbul linked to the suicide bombers who carried out this week's deadly attack on Ataturk International Airport.
