Absolutely stunning airports! I'm going to visit the Antalya Airport in less than one month. It looks great, reminds me of a shopping mall, though.

Last year I was on both airports in Istanbul Ataturk and Sabiha. Both very nice, clean, busy and expensive.

im from south africa and even here we dont have so many major international airports with such huge handling capacities. look at lots of other hugely populated countries in the world, they dont compare with turrkey in the amount of world class airports, there must be a huge demand for flying there?

South Africa's population is about 45 million whereas Turkey's is about 70 million also the surface is much larger. Beside this Turkey with 31 million tourists annualy is among world's top 10 tourism destination and it serves as a bridge between Europe and Mideast/Asia so there are quite some reasons for the current situation, I think.

These airports you see above exist for 5 years ca. Turkey has the fastest growing sector worldwide. For example Istanbul served 11 million passengers in 2002, in 2008 the number was 34 millon. Turkish Airlines had a fleet of 50 aircrafts in 2003 and today 135 aircrafts + 35 orders in 2008 + 115 orders in 2009.

Here you've got a topic about Turkish Airlines. It's probably going to be Europe's first 5 star airline.

Istanbul (europe), Ankara, Izmir are run by TAV, a private company

Istanbul (asia) is built and run by a private company

Antalya is run by the German FRAPORT.

Will the Marmaray connect the two Istanbul airports with fast trains? Then it will be possible to make a scheme to relief the traffic on the European side a bit...

Yes, marmaray will connect both airports in a second phase but it will take some time until marmaray is completed. There are plans by the ministry of transportation to build a gigantic airport (50 million cap.) on the European side outside of Istanbul but I guess we'll have to wait a bit longer for that since the Asian airport is being extended to 25 million passengers annually.

Are you retarded? I just gave facts about Turkey and didn't give any personal opinion.
Did you adopt this kind of attitude in Germany?

Let's see where I lied or exaggerated.

Facts I've given:

1) I said Turkey's population is about 70 million. The official number is 71.530.000

2) I said Turkey surface is bigger than S. Africa's. Check google if you don't believe or have a look on the map

3) I said Turkey is among top 10 tourism destinations. Check WTO and latest numbers, Turkey is 6th.

4) I said Turkish Airlines has a fleet of 135 and ordered 35+115 new machines. Here is a report of 105 orders, 35 have been orderded during the last Air show in Paris. http://www.zaman.com.tr/haber.do?hab...parisi-verecek

5 I said that Turkish Airlines is going to be porobably the first 5-star airline in Europe. Here you can check airline rating. Turkish is rated better than Lufthansa, British or Air France. All of them are 4-star airlines but TK is moving towards 5-stars if you look closely.

TK's average fleet age is 5,8 whereas Lufthansa's is 12,8.


TK business class looks more comfortable than Lufthansa's first class:

TK business class

Lufthansa first class:


TK first class:


So where is all the "blabla" you were talking about?

Messi:
Your pictures show the interior of the 777-300ER aircraft that TK has leased from Jet Airways of India.
The Airbuses 330 and 340 that fly the majority of TKs long hauls (for example New York, Tokyo)
-don't have a First Class at all
-don't have the private-cabin-type layout in Business Class, but 2+2+2 seats (source: photos on airliners.net)
These are just facts...

Turkish Airlines introduced the "first class" with the new 777-300ER's which are leased but TK also ordered 13x 777-300ER and 10 A330 with the same configuration in Paris just some weeks ago.

The fact is that TK mondernized its mid and shorthaul aircrafts and completed the modernization last year. Another fact is that TK introduced first class last year and one more fact is that TK ordered 23 longhaul aircrafts with the first class configuration. The rest is just blabla!
