The General Directorate of State Airports Authority, DHMI, of Turkey are preparing for the opening of a third airport in Istanbul to accommodate the growth of traffic in the region which is expected to double in the coming decade, surpassing the number of 2,000,000 flights which would need to be handled by Turkey per year.
EUROCONTROL and The General Directorate of State Airports Authority of Turkey ran a series of real-time simulation sessions to support the implementation of a radically new airspace design for the Istanbul TMA (terminal manoeuvring area).
EUROCONTROL works in partnership with Euronews to produce a series of short videos on ATM-related issues. In this playlist you'll find an overview of the various programmes. More information about Boarding Pass, produced in 2017, is available at http://www.euronews.com/programs/boarding-pass .
