With a year full of Istanbul Airport’s unique architecture, strong infrastructure, state-of-the-art technology and superior passenger experience, we’ve made enormous strides in turning the airport into a global hub and advancing the Turkish civil aviation industry to higher levels by creating an exemplary operation model. The Airport of the Year award, which we received by outperforming some of the most prestigious airports, signifies our exceptional performance at Istanbul Airport. In light of the pride we’ve brought our country and the example we’ve set, we want to bring more international prizes to Turkey by achieving our targets.”
