3rd airport statement from DHMI: General Directorate of State Airports Administration reported that the claims about the 3rd airport to be constructed in Istanbul as 'will swallow four billion marshes' are completely unrealistic and fictitious.
The General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI) said in a statement that some media reports about unregistered media in the new Istanbul airport are subject to regulations and regulations.
It is a pity that the new Istanbul airport, which is intended to be one of the airports with the largest passenger capacity in the world, is already in history as the most important vision of Turkish transportation history, and that it is subject to an unfair smear campaign. said to be.
The statement, which was reminded from DHMI on many occasions about criticism from time to time in some media outlets, stated the following:
“Finally, Mr. Lütfi Elvan, our Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, answered all the claims in detail in the construction site and expressed the facts in a way that will not leave any doubt. Dear Minister, clarified the issue of 'Level regulation'; stated that this process does not mean a reduction in costs. This explanation was the most authoritative answer to those who tried to present the arrangement of the runway level as an imaginary public loss. Despite these explanations that fundamentally refute the purposeful claims, it is thought-provoking that the news, which turned into a magical service and anti-investment, is still in the headlines.
Studies on Istanbul's new airport, including the level-level arrangement, are based on serious technical and scientific data. All transactions in the process regarding location selection, tender and environmental factors were carried out in coordination with the relevant institutions in accordance with the legislation and laws. The works carried out in a way that will not leave the slightest suspicion about public interest, flight safety, legislation and compliance with the law will continue with the same sensitivity and meticulousness. ”
In the statement, which stated that the cost advantage of elevation change to the company in charge is a subject that can be evaluated in favor of DHMI, the claims that “it will swallow four billion marshes” are completely unrealistic and imaginative. They are futile efforts to open this large investment to public debate ”.
