Can Turkey continue to deliver growth at this pace?
As the Istanbul airport system moves up the rankings, the construction of a new airport, Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST), can help build on its strong standing. Turkey's economic growth may have risen but can it continue to deliver growth at this pace?
Turkey’s ambition to be a global player on the aviation stage is evident with its plan to construct the world's largest airport. Using OAG Schedules Analyser and Traffic Analyser, we investigate:
