Istanbul Airport receives 'Special Achievement Award'

Posted 21 May 2019 · Add Comment

Istanbul Airport (IGA) has won the ‘Special Achievement Award’ under the 'Outstanding Innovation' at a ceremony organised by Global Traveler magazine.

 

İGA corporate communications director Gökhan Şengül accepted the award on behalf of Istanbul Airport.

İGA was chosen for the award for completing the first phase of its three-stage development process. The airport saves more than 30 tons of CO2 each year while featuring hundreds of thousands of dining and retail space. The airport will add two more runways, boosting potential traffic by 30 million before ultimate completion.

Şengül said: "Istanbul Airport has been deemed worthy of many awards with its unique architecture, tower design and, most importantly, the social responsibility projects it implemented. We are proud to have received such a prestigious award from one of USA's most popular magazines, Global Traveler. Moreover, receiving an award under the category of innovation is proof of the difference our airport made in such field. Given to Changi Airport in Singapore last year, this award we received by outdoing many other projects across the world is an indication that we performed our jobs the right way. Istanbul Airport, Turkey's window to the world, will be deemed worthy of many more awards in the upcoming years through the travel experience and service approach it offers."
