TAV Airports President & CEO Sani Sener stated: “Atatürk Airport provides service to a significant part of Turkish air traffic at Atatürk Airport. Last week, the new apron investment of DHMI at the air side was put into service. Additional 26 parking lots will bring significant relief to the parking capacity. The cargo hangar investments of Turkish Airlines, Havas and Çelebi at the new cargo section have also been completed.
We have signed the agreement regarding the investment consisting of the expansion of the international terminal to the former cargo area, early baggage storage facility and third luggage facility to be built for the increasing transit passenger number of Turkish Airlines and addition of a new check-in isle in the main building. The investment amount will be around 75 million Euros.
We cannot even think that we do not need investing in Atatürk Airport while institutions such as DHMI, Turkish Airlines, Havas and Çelebi continue their investments. We always give priority to social benefits as well as financial profitability and interests of the country. TAV is one of the exceptional global brands of Turkey. Atatürk Airport has become one of the most important airports of the world and TAV has a significant share in this achievement besides DHMI, Turkish Airlines and other airline companies. We will continue our investments in the following six years without compromising service quality and passenger comfort."
