My internal source at Bombardier told me that TK is looking at C Series aircraft, possibly ordering a mix of both models on offer. He also mentioned that not all orders are with the new IST hub in mind. I don't know if that means some will go to AnadoluJet or not, but we can expect to see a "s...Jump to post
Posts like this make me further realise the importance of proper paragraph use.
I think with EasyJet growth, it's a matter of slots.
They could indeed try Virgin Islands-US market.
I think the plan is to built a smaller version or perhaps even a twin of the current terminal building between future runways 3 and 4. Probably all airlines other than TK will be moved to this new terminal building. http://www.igairport.com/Constant%20Assets/iga_master_plan_webtr05.jpg I heard some...Jump to post
Not again, Dubai El Maktoum will be more than 200 mil/year. New Istanbul wil be 150 mil/year after all phases completed.

Daxing was always going to be bigger than the new IST. I have no idea why they advertised it as the world's biggest in the first place. The approval for Daxing was given in 2013 and the construction started in 2014. So it's impossible that they didn't have the figures by the time the marketing star...Jump to post

They simply cannot have armed staff members.
This is the same policy many other nations (Sweden is another example in El Al case) maintain at their airports.
In fact, El Al is rather bitter about not being able to fly to Turkey. If they could, they would. This is a matter that El Al administration brings up frequently in interviews because they are constantly being bombarded by questions of TK surpassing 1 million passenger mark out of TLV. Can you find...Jump to post

The real reason why El Al doesn't serve IST and AYT is that Turkish authorities have issues with Israeli security measures on flights to TLV and they do not want Mossad agents on the ground. They tried to get Israel to accept private security on the ground, but they declined, so El Al stopped flight...Jump to post

On the other hand, a relatively influential news site (kokpit.aero's) chief editor has recently "recomended" that things should be taken slowly and one at a time, and TK's final establishment at INA should better be prolongued until end May 2019.

Assuming 1 J = 4 Y. Why would you assume that though? TK is 6abreast in J on its Airbus widebodies and 7 abreast on its 777s.
