The number of airports for flights from Turkey to abroad (and vice versa) not so much. Sabiha Gokcen Airport (Istanbul), Istanbul Airport, Esenboga Airport (Ankara), Adnan Menderes Airport (Izmir) and Antalya Airport are the airports you can use when coming to Turkey from abroad (and vice versa). Of these, Antalya Airport usually provides services for tourist trips, so connecting flights are not enough from Antalya to Turkey’s other minor cities. Although the connecting flights are much more in Ankara and Izmir, the number of international lines serving these cities are very insufficient. As a result, if you want to come to Turkey from abroad(or vice versa) your way will probably pass through Istanbul.

Therefore, if you have a flight to Turkey from abroad (or vice versa), your way will probably pass from Istanbul Airport. Sabiha Gokcen Airport, which is the only airport on the Anatolian side of Istanbul, is used by many airlines, but is not preferred by Turkish Airlines.
What makes Istanbul Airport so attractive? Istanbul Airport is Turkey's largest airport which started operations in 2018. When all construction is completed, it will be one of the largest airports in the world. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey's president, is pursuing a policy towards the development of the Istanbul Airport. Therefore, in the current political and economic conditions, Istanbul Airport seems to continue to be Turkey's busiest airport.
