In other words, 100 million tons of 91 million tons of filling are over. We reached 27% in the superstructure. The silhouettes of the buildings are now visible. When you examine the technical details at the airport, we see what a great engineering wonder we are faced with.
It is a very important investment for both our region and our city. When we think of this place with Trabzon, we will have provided the place that will provide uninterrupted air transportation with this airport and I hope that our city will be able to overcome several levels in terms of trade, tourism, economy and social life. We are doing the second phase of our organized industry, which you can think as integrated with our tourism master plans and tourism investments that we have integrated here, with our integrated routes, and hopefully together with our logistics port, we are making a very important planning in the Eastern Black Sea as a series of integrated investments and making the most contribution to the 2023-2071 goals We aim to be one of the provinces that give.
