Stating that he had the chance to examine the runway works at the airport, Arslan said, “The works are progressing satisfactorily. Hopefully, after the construction of the taxiway between the current runway and the current runway and the apron, the old runway will continue to be used from the existing taxiway, and after the old taxiway joins this runway, the entire runway will be finished. ” said.
Reminding that the planes coming to Kars will have used the new runway and subsequently that the asphalt was renewed 11-12 years ago, Arslan said, “The renewal works of the existing runway will continue.

“Now it's not like that anymore. There can be fast taxiway exits from everywhere, as well as the planes will be able to leave the runway at any time and thus arrive at a shorter distance and time to the apron. Since our satisfaction is the time for maintenance of our current runway, if we had it repaired, it would have to close the airport. Besides, our airport serves Kars, Ardahan, and some parts of Artvin, including Iğdır from time to time. The services would be disrupted, but here we will repair the existing track after serving on this track together with the track that we built. Thus, the service will be rendered without any closure of the airport in any way with the alternate repairs when the need is needed. Last year, the foundations were laid and with the work we added, we aimed to finish Kars' liberation day on October 30, but the current works show that it can be finished before that. I thank the friends again. ”
