Turkish Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Binali Yildirim has stated that they expected at least three strong bids for the new airport to be built in Istanbul.
Yildirim gathered with the members of the press at the Esenboga International Airport Simulator Training Center in Ankara.
"It's great that 16 firms have bought specifications for the airport tender. It is a very big project, let's be realistic, we can't expect 8 or 10 bids. Three or more bids will be considered as success on our side," Yildirim said.
Stating that the new airport would be completed in four stages, Yildirim said, the airport will serve 90 million passengers in 5 years and its capacity will increase to 150 million passengers in the next three stages, in 25 years.
