Istanbul’s third airport clearly has its eye on cargo. It has signed a €250m deal for space at its Cargo City and Ground Services Campus for an operational period of 25 years. Six of Turkey’s largest cargo companies – MNG, Celebi, PTT, Sistem Logistics, Bilin Logistics and HAVAS – will operate in Cargo City. Just over half the airport is now completed and half the available capacity is rented out. The airport is hoping to become an international transport hub, offering capacity for 35 widebody freighters to operate simultaneously. It will have capacity of 5.5m tons of freight on completion.
