Zafer Airport, which was built with the Build-Operate-Transfer model and was expensive due to its lining, became a black hole. Until May, only 2021 passengers arrived at the airport, where 1 million 317 thousand passengers were guaranteed for the year 61. Due to the guarantees given for non-flying passengers, the company will increase the investment of 50 million Euros by the end of this year. It will profit in the next 23 years.
According to the report of Deniz Ayhan from SÖZCÜ; “The company operating the airport is paid 2 Euros per passenger for domestic flights and 10 Euros for international flights. For the airport, whose operating period is 29 years 11 months, money will be released until 2044 due to passengers who do not fly from the state purse. The total population of Kütahya-Afyon and Uşak, where the airport serves, is 1 million 678 thousand people. In other words, an annual passenger guarantee for the airport is almost equal to the population of 3 provinces.
6.7 MILLION EURO
At the airport, a passenger guarantee for 2020 thousand 752 persons on domestic flights and 560 thousand 526 persons on international flights is envisaged in 792. In 2020, the number of domestic passengers remained at 4 thousand 746 and the number of international passengers at 2 thousand 489. While the number of passenger guarantees last year was 1 million 279 thousand 352, the total number of passengers using the airport remained at 7 thousand 235 people. In 2020, 6 million 738 thousand Euros were paid for the passengers who did not come to the IC İçtaş company operating the area.
WARRANTY HAS EVER HOLD
CHP Zonguldak Deputy and TBMM KIT Commission member Deniz Yavuzyılmaz stated that the margin of error between the number of passengers and the number of passengers flying at Zafer Airport is 99 percent and said to SÖZCÜ: “Passenger guarantees have never kept at the airport since 2012, the Treasury ' 46 million Euros have been paid since. Due to the guarantee given until 2044, the total money to be transferred to the company will be 208 million 131 thousand Euros. The company will make a 300 percent profit. With this money, 50 qualified factories could be established and employment could be created for 10 thousand people.
6 THOUSAND PASSENGERS SHOULD BE ON EVERY AIRCRAFT FOR THE TREASURY NOT TO DAMAGE
According to the information given by Deniz Yavuzyılmaz, CHP Zonguldak Deputy and TBMM KIT Commission member Deniz Yavuzyılmaz, there are 2021 days a week and one domestic flight at the airport in 4. Yavuzyılmaz said, “208 domestic flights will be made annually. Even if all the planes are full, at most 40 thousand passengers will fly annually. "There must be at least 6 thousand 335 passengers on each plane in order to prevent the Treasury from harming," he said.
