TAV Airports becomes focus of interest at Routes

Aviation professionals from all over the world met in Abu Dhabi. Participating in the forum with its 12 airports operated in six countries, TAV Airports’ stand attracted huge interest.

The stand of TAV Airports, a leading global brand of Turkey in airport operations, attracted huge interest from visitors attending the 18th World Route Development Forum. The forum was held between September 29th and October 2nd in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and the airports operated by TAV, particularly Medinah Airport which was recently taken over, became the focus of interest for airlines and tourism professionals.

TAV Airports Corporate Communications Coordinator Bengi Vargul stated “Routes is one of the most comprehensive and important organizations of the sector. It presents a chance to observe the direction of the sector globally as well as following up the developments more closely within the regions we operate and creating new opportunities. We are here with Istanbul Ataturk, Ankara Esenboga, Izmir Adnan Menderes and Antalya Gazipasa airports that we operate in Turkey as well as our airports in Tunisia, Georgia and Macedonia. This year we also have Medinah Airport in Saudi Arabia at our stand for the first time. This project on the Holly Land has a special meaning to us. Nowadays, we, as TAV, welcome pilgrim candidates departing from various airports we operate in Turkey and other countries also in Medina. The first few groups started to leave and so far, we have received very good feedback. We have also opened our terminal in Medina which was renovated in a very short time. Once more, we have realized that TAV comes to mind when speaking about design, construction, financing and operation of airports all around the world and this makes us both proud and happy.

3000 representatives of 300 airline companies, 650 airports and 200 international tourism authorities attended the Routes Forum this year. TAV Group won the tender for the construction of Midfield Terminal, one of the biggest projects of the region in Abu Dhabi that hosted the forum a short time ago. TAV Construction will build a terminal with a capacity of 27 million passengers within the scope of the project that will cost approximately 3 billion dollars.
