Sabiha Gökçen Airport has become one of the leading airports in the world, serving over 600 aircraft and 105 thousand passengers per day.

It has become one of the world's exemplary enviable projects, which hosts the landing and take-off of the plane. Although we do not spend a penny from our state's coffers, it will provide our state with a total income of 1400 billion Euros during the operation period.


Stating that Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Istanbul Airport are very valuable works that will serve this country for centuries after the end of their operation period, Karaismailoğlu said, “I hope Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Istanbul Airport are among the most important pillars of Turkey, which is developing, growing and has the world's top 10 economies. there will be two. We have intensive work in all sectors. We are working intensively with all our friends in a total development effort in the land, air, railway, communication sector, space and sea. We have a big breakthrough in railways. Currently, we have entered a period of railway-based investment. We will carry passengers on our 4 km high-speed train line, which is currently under construction, all over our country, and we are doing important works that will contribute to the export and production of our country in terms of logistics.”

Karaismailoğlu stated that they are in an effort to increase the 8 provinces connected to the high-speed train on the railway to 52 in the coming years, “Again, we have important works to reduce the costs in logistics and the logistics cost in production by connecting our ports and organized industrial zones to the railway lines. In addition, reducing carbon emissions is one of the important factors in our railway investments. Intercity railways continue. Again within the city, our railway investments and rail system metro investments, which are planned in important metropolises and regions with high population density, continue feverishly. We have important investments in Bursa, Kocaeli, Ankara, İzmir, Kayseri and Gaziantep. There are those that are about to end, there are those that continue. Hopefully, we will put our important investments into the service of our nation in the coming days. We have 7 metro lines that are under construction by our ministry throughout Istanbul. We completed our 260-kilometer metro line, which is currently being operated in Istanbul, before 2019 and put it into the service of Istanbulites. This year, starting from October, we will open an important metro line in Istanbul every month. We will finish our other 4 metro lines in 2023," he said.

Hopefully, in October, we will put this finished line at the service of our nation. Together with Sabiha Gökçen Airport, with the D100, we are bringing the neighborhoods of Sabiha Gökçen Airport, especially Pendik, where there is a dense population movement and business movement, with the metro. As of October, we will bring the Şeyhli, Yayalar, Fevzi Çakmak and Kurtköy neighborhoods together with the comfort of the metro.”

We also complete the Istanbul Airport connections and the metro connections at Başakşehir Çam and Sakura Hospital. We took over our metro line in Başakşehir right away when the current administration said that they would not build the metro line that we started earlier in the municipality time, and when they informed us that they would not build the metro line of our hospital, which has provided very important benefits especially during the pandemic process, as they did not make its way, and in such a short time. We will finish our metro line within 2 years and offer it to the service of Istanbulites in December.”

They even went further and started the liquidation process. Unfortunately, within 3,5 years, the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality took over and tendered, while the ongoing metro lines should have been completed until today, unfortunately, some of them have entered the liquidation process as there has been no progress. Hopefully they will speed up after this and make up for their time loss. We have this hope, but unfortunately we cannot see that activity in the field.” he said.
