The latest issue of ANKER report is out and some interesting numbers for Turkish Aviation:

In other ISL related news there are rumors of behind the scenes argument between TK and government officials about TK not willing to move on December 31st, as they think the new airport being not ready will be tough to operate from and will cause delays for customers and loss of reputation.
