I think there shouldn't be so much construction near airports.

Turkish Airlines extends plane purchase tender

Turkish Airlines has extended the deadline of a tender for 105 planes to Jan. 19 at the request of Boeing and Airbus, the airline said on Thursday.


Turkish Airlines (THY) announced the planned plane order on Oct. 14 and the tender was scheduled for completion on Dec. 17.

The order, worth over $6 billion at list price, reflects a bid by one of Europe's fastest growing carriers to strengthen its position in the region.

"The plane purchase tender has been extended until Jan. 19, 2009 at the request of the manufacturing companies," the THY statement said.

THY, partly owned by the Turkish state, invited Boeing Co and Airbus, a unit of EADS, to bid.

It had said it would place a firm order for 25 wide-body, long-haul planes and 50 narrow-body, medium-haul aircraft. It would also place options for 10 wide-body and 20 narrow-body aircraft.

The fleet expansion comes as the industry battles to cope with the global financial crisis and economic slowdown.

Turkish Airlines will have 3 Boeing 777-300ER in the short period and increase the number of the planes due to the needs. THY is one of the fast developing airlines in the world.

Istanbul airport targets 100 carriers by 2011
By Hamisah Hamid
Published: 2008/12/30

ISTANBUL Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SGIA) in Turkey, which is undergoing modernisation, plans to attract 100 airlines by 2011.

There are currently about 70 airlines operating at the airport.

SGIA chief commercial officer Server Aydin said the airport plans to focus on long-haul market such as Colombo-Istanbul route and as far as China and Malaysian market.

Aydin said the airport has an attractive incentive package for new airlines such as marketing support for first year operation, competitive landing rate and discount on fuel rate.

"Our incentive package reduces airlines' operational cost by 50 per cent.

"Our punctuality rate is 99 per cent on departures because we know how one-minute delay could cost the airlines money," he said in an interview with Business Times during the 14th World Route Development Forum (Routes 2008) in Kuala Lumpur.

Participation in Routes had been fruitful for SGIA team as the airport has been able to attract about 10 airlines - both low-cost carriers (LCCs) and full service airlines - to fly from the airport.

SGIA was named after Sabiha Gokcen, the world's first female combat pilot. It is located on the Asian side of Istanbul with a catchment area of 17.5 million people.

The airport was built because the Atarturk International, located on the European side of Istanbul, was not large enough to meet the rising number of domestic and international passengers.

In June 2007, a consortium comprising Turkish conglomerate Limak (40 per cent), India's GMR Group (40 per cent) and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (20 per cent), won the contract for upgrading and maintaining SGIA.

The upgrading of the airport is expected to be completed by 2010, which would boast SGIA's capacity to between 20 million and 25 million passengers.

Aydin said for this year, SGIA expects 38 per cent increase in international traffic and 49 per cent increase in domestic traffic.

He said there is a huge increase in tourist arrivals in the country, which would contribute to bigger passenger volume at SGIA.

"We expect 70 million tourists (to visit Turkey) in 2020. So, there is no doubt that we (SGIA) would reach the passenger capacity in the next seven to eight years," he said.

Currently, tourists and business travellers are about equal at SGIA.

Aydin said SGIA regards itself as a "hybrid airport" because it caters for both LCCs and full-service airlines.

Main airlines operating at SGIA include Pegasus, Sun Express, Turks Airline, EasyJet, German Links and Air Arabia.

Airports, highways to get further investments

ISTANBUL - The global financial crisis will not cause any delays in transportation investment, to the contrary, the government will increase its investment in the industry by 11 percent.

"This year, we will invest 300 million Turkish liras in developing air transportation," said Binali Yıldırım, minister for transportation.

"We will make additional investments in five existing airports and construct three new ones. The new airports will include a third airport in Istanbul, one in the Kütahya-Afyon-Uşak area and another one in the Çukurova region," Yıldırım said during a meeting held over the weekend by the Economy Journalists Association, or EGD.

"As the Transportation Ministry, we have provided 60 billion liras to the Turkish Republic over the past six years. Meanwhile, we have used only 30 billion liras from the budget. We have built highways, railways, airports and harbors," Yıldırım said.

Marmaray, a rail tunnel running under the Bosphorus Strait, once completed, will help nearly 1.5 million Istanbul residents travel each day from Anatolia to Trace or vica versa, said Yıldırım. The construction of a high-speed train that will provide transportation between Eskişehir and Ankara will be completed by the end of the year, he added.
