Rize-Artvin Airport, which is one of the mega projects of the region that Rize is eagerly waiting for, has come to an end. Rize Governor Kemal Ceber, together with his wife Neslihan Ayan Ceber and Pazar Governor Mustafa Akın, made investigations on the airport construction. He received information about the latest status of the works from the contractor company officials.
Governor Kemal Ceber, who stated that their excitement increased as the works for Rize-Artvin Airport, the second airport of Turkey, which was built with sea filling with an annual capacity of 3 million passengers, increased, said, “We have come to the end of a proud and exciting project for our region and our country in Rize. Apart from our airport, which will make a significant contribution to the economy and tourism of our city, we see the architecture of Rize completely. Again, when you visit the interior of our terminal building, we see that stone and wood are used. At the same time, we see the tea museum and areas related to tea. Our excitement grows as we visit this place and see the work that has emerged. Hopefully, we will open our airport in the near future and offer it to our citizens," he said.
SECOND AIRPORT ON THE SEA
Rize-Artvin Airport, which was built in Yeşilköy and Pazar coast locations, which is 34 kilometers from the center of Rize, 54 kilometers from Hopa district center and 125 kilometers from Artvin, will be the second sea-fill airport in Turkey and Europe, after Ordu-Giresun Airport.
The airport, which will be built on an international conventional scale, will have a runway of 3 meters by 45 meters, a connecting road called a taxiway of 265 meters by 24 meters, and two aprons of 300 meters by 120 meters and 120 meters by 120 meters.
TOURISM POTENTIAL IS PROJECTED TO INCREASE
The airport, which was designed with reference to Boeing 737-800 type aircraft for landing and take-off, will have a runway and runway connection roads on the east-west axis, parallel to the sea, in an area of 4 meters with the approach.
With the construction of Rize-Artvin Airport, it is aimed to increase the domestic and international tourism potential by providing fast, safe and comfortable transportation by air, especially to Istanbul and Ankara, to the highlands located in the unique geography of Rize, Artvin and the Eastern Black Sea.
