We officially opened Istanbul Airport on 29 October 2018, but our airport started operating at full capacity on April 14, 6, about 2019 months ago. Until today, our airport has hosted a total of 107 thousand flights and 316 million passengers, including 423 thousand domestic flights and 65 thousand international flights. These numbers will increase rapidly as the waiting times in domestic and international lines will be shortened with the new runway, the second tower and the taxiway to be opened. Another feature of our runway that we have opened is that it enables even the biggest planes of the world to land and take off and park easily. Also, there are very few airports in the world that control high density air traffic with the second tower adjacent to this runway. Our track is an exemplary work with its technical infrastructure that allows it to be used in all weather conditions. With the opening of the metro line, which is still under construction, the connection time of our airport with the city will be shortened. "

A new era in global and regional air transportation has begun with the introduction of our airport, which has expressed the admiration of everyone who uses it. So much so that many countries had to review the status of existing airports and new airport investments.

When we look back at Hamdols today, we see that we have kept our promise on these four areas by adding many additional services including transportation from energy to agriculture, industry to trade. I believe that even what we do only in the field of transportation is sufficient to make our face alone. ” he spoke.

Starting from the airport, he expressed his wish to remind the services outlined. Erdoğancontinued his words as follows:
“In 2002, the total number of airline passengers in our country did not even reach 34 million. This figure was 209 million last year.

This number will increase even more with our airports, which are still under construction, such as Yozgat, Rize, Artvin Bayburt and Gümüşhane. We increased the passenger capacity of our terminals from 60 million to 258 million, to 318 million. Our airline cargo capacity, which is 303 tons per day, has reached the level of 2 thousand 500 tons. In the meantime, we managed to increase the flights to only 60 destinations abroad, with 290 additions. We increased the turnover of the sector from $ 350 billion to $ 3 billion. These are just what we do in air transportation.
On the highways, we have always said our split road length, I say again, we increased from 6 thousand 100 kilometers to 21 thousand 100 kilometers with the addition of 27 thousand 200 kilometers. We carried our network of 1714 kilometers on our highways over 1400 kilometers with an additional 3100 kilometers. We increased the number of our tunnels from 83 to 395, and their length from 50 kilometers to 523 kilometers. In railways, we weave our country with high-speed train and high-speed train networks that have never been before. Currently, 1213 kilometers of high-speed railways serve. This number will increase to 2 thousand with the lines that will soon come into service. In addition, the construction of the new high-speed train line, which is close to 2 thousand kilometers, continues. Many of them are planning. In addition, we have renewed the 11 kilometer line, which corresponds to almost all of our existing rail network. ”
Each of our transportation investment in Istanbul is world-class.
President Erdoganstated that each of their transportation investments in Istanbul, the country's largest city and the junction of the two continents, is world-class artifacts.

Thus find a total of 880 billion pounds of transport investment with Turkey's transportation infrastructure, we bring the development goals. There are many divided roads, highways, ring roads, bridges and tunnels that are still under construction. said.
You can't talk about being civilized if you have no way, no water
Stating that they made or continue to make many important urban rail system investments from Istanbul to Ankara, from Izmir to Antalya, from Konya to Erzurum. Erdoğancontinued his speech as follows:
“The better we come to transportation investments as the basic element of development, the more we open our country's growth and strength. Because I always say two things, the road is civilization, water is civilization. You cannot talk about being civilized if you have no way, no water. For this, we are determined to continue transportation and infrastructure investments without interruption.
In our holy book, the Holy One, our Lord commands us to turn to the other when he has finished a job. We never say okay to our country and nation by looking at the services we have done so far. On the contrary, the works in front of us inspire, encourage and encourage us to make much better, much better, much bigger. ”
What happened during the epidemic period showed the magnitude of Turkey's potential
What happened during the epidemic that also affect Turkey together with the whole world, opportunities and potential that Turkey once again showed the size of the transfer Erdoğancontinued his speech as follows:
“If this nation gets up in 45 days and a 1008-room hospital is to Yeşilköy and a 1008-room hospital to Sancaktepe, it shows with God's permission how much this nation is determined, how determined, and capable. On the other hand, with Çam and Sakura City Hospital, again in Başakşehir, by creating a truly magnificent work, 'We are able to do it with the permission of Allah, not only to our country, but to the whole world. we said. There is another beauty here. What is that? We took a step in health tourism. Airplanes will land in Yeşilköy and will pass to the hospital on foot. All the advanced technology is there.
Likewise Sancaktepe is the old military airport. He will land there, he will go to the hospital from the pedestrian road again and treat him, and from there he will return by plane. We enrich tourism with this. With what? With health tourism. On the other hand, Çam and Sakura City Hospital are both close to IGA and Yeşilköy. There, again, the most advanced technology is available in health. Thus, we make health tourism very strong. We were able to come out with the flux of our forehead, thanks to this process, in which even the developed countries were helpless in many aspects. Of course, not everything is over. Our struggle continues. ”
