Megavliegveld Istanbul krijgt dubbel zoveel vliegmaatschappijen als Schiphol

De nieuwe luchthaven van Istanbul, die de grootste ter wereld zal worden als alle fases zijn voltooid, zal ruim 250 luchtvaartmaatschappijen verwelkomen.

Dat liet CEO Yusuf Akçayoğlu van IGA Airports, onderdeel van het consortium dat het megavliegveld bouwt, weten in een interview met persbureau AA.

De 250 vliegmaatschappijen zullen naar meer dan 350 bestemmingen over de hele wereld vliegen, waarmee het vliegveld ook nog een van de grootste hubs ter wereld zal worden. De nationale luchtvaartmaatschappij van het land, Turkish Airlines, staat daarnaast ook bekend als de vliegmaatschappij die naar de meeste bestemmingen ter wereld vliegt.

Ter vergelijking met overige vliegvelden: op de Nederlandse luchthaven Schiphol, tevens een grote hub in Europa, vliegen rond de 125 luchtvaartmaatschappijen (inclusief cargo).


Akçayoğlu kwam ook met andere cijfers: passagiers zullen met een Turkse terminal te maken krijgen die 1,3 miljoen vierkante meter groot is.

De nu overvolle luchthaven Istanbul-Atatürk brak recent een record in het aantal vliegbewegingen (1.500), maar dat aantal zal 2.000 zijn voor het nieuwe megavliegveld van het land, dat werkgelegenheid zal bieden aan 100.000 mensen.

Daarnaast krijgt volgens Akçayoğlu de nieuwe Turkse luchthaven ook de grootste parkeergarage van Europa, waar plek zal zijn voor 18.000 auto’s.

De eerste fase van het megavliegveld is al voor dertig procent voltooid en opent in februari 2018.

Expo 2016 Antalya

What is EXPO?
An expo is a world’s fair or universal exposition. Expo is also the event internationally known as the World’s Fair, which has been held since mid-19th century. The corresponding term in Turkish refers to an exhibition display or show. Expo is the largest cultural, historical and educational Olympiad in the world.

World’s Largest Social Event
When compared to the Olympic Games or the World’s Cup, Expo is by far more important in terms of its sheer scale and duration as an event, the volume of investments made as a result of its organization and the number of visitors who travel to attend it; it is also recognized as the largest social and economical event in the world.

Cultural and Scientific Developments
Expos are expositions of technological, scientific and cultural developments of the contemporary period and beyond.
Dating back to the mid-1800s, EXPOs have had the quality of a show. Known as the “World’s Fair”, Expos are considered the most extensive events in the world, enabling nations to exchange information on culture, history and education for the purpose of creating a better world. EXPO reveals the contemporary state of the world and reveals visions, opportunities, problems and solutions for the future in all of their aspects. Apart from being a large event, EXPOs extend to local, national and international arenas. Moreover, EXPOs, with their ability to effectively communicate themes of universal interest in both an educational and entertaining way, also have the capacity to bring together people from a wide range nationalities and backgrounds.
Turkey’s 2016 Horticultural Expo provides a unique opportunity for children to learn about and experience the environment around them, their natural resources and related ways of living—sustainable development and green initiatives—while encouraging them to think about and generate solutions to the impacts that urban life has on them, and to share these ideas with the world.
