The German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Praises Istanbul's New Airport

Among Germany's most widely circulating newspapers and one that is distributed to many other countries, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) has featured Istanbul's New Airport on its pages. Dr. Rainer Hermann, a FAZ editor, published his interview with İGA CEO Yusuf Akçayoğlu under the heading, "The city on everybody's flight route."

With its goal of becoming the world's biggest airport when all phases have been completed, the Istanbul New Airport continues to make itself heard in international circles. The Istanbul New Airport, the biggest project of Republican history, was given broad coverage in Germany's well-known Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Getting together recently with Dr. Rainer Hermann, one of the editors of the German Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), İGA CEO Yusuf Akçayoğlu talked about the developments in the Istanbul New Airport construction. Hermann published the interview in two full pages under the heading, "The city on everybody's flight route."

In his article, Hermann said that the world's biggest airport would be opening in Istanbul at the beginning of 2018. Adding that operators would thus see that balances would be shifting toward Asia, Hermann wrote that the seemingly crazy and megalomaniacal project had been well designed. In his news story, Hermann continued to say that the Istanbul New Airport construction was being completed in record time, something that Berliners could only see in their dreams, and recorded that the airport would be four times bigger than the Frankfurt Airport.
