The fact that instead of saying 'put additional flights to our Kayseri', they come to us and demand to add additional flights to us shows once again that Kayseri is a rising value. We thank those who contributed. Memduh President has been very busy with this job. He relented. Recently, the transfer of our Minister of Transport's allowance from 2023 to 2022 has been an igniting cartridge for this work. If God permits, it will be possible to see passengers getting on and off here these days next year.”
