TAV Airports Holding President and CEO M.

The awards received by the airports we operate are very important for us because we invest a great deal in developing markets. These awards motivate TAV employees.” Şener added: “While air traffic increases in the summer season, TAV Airports, which operates 10 airports on three continents, abiding by its experience in the global arena, continues to welcome passengers with enthusiasm and fast, high quality service. Our priority as TAV Airports is the sharing of best practices between all players to add value to the growth of our sector. The main factors in this growth are cooperation and communication. In other words, we have adopted a philosophy of “competition based on cooperation.” TAV contributes to the growth of the market at every level. While contributing to the development of the sector on the one hand, being awarded for our success on the other is much more meaningful for us.”
