Sani Şener said : “We’re happy to add Almaty Airport, which is a main transit hub between Asia and Europe, to our portfolio. Almaty is strategically located on ‘the modern Silk Road’, established from China to Europe and Africa through air transport. Kazakhstan is the largest country in the region -both geographically and economically- and Almaty is the largest city in the country producing 20% of Kazakhstan’s GDP. We believe there’s a significant potential for growth in Almaty Airport, and drawing upon our extensive know-how, we’ll work towards realizing this potential to the fullest. As part of the largest airport management group globally, we’ll be promoting Almaty and Kazakhstan as the business capital of the region, as a country with a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourism opportunities. Our expertise in route development will help to increase the connectivity of Almaty to the world. As an example, in Georgia we doubled the number of destinations and increased passenger traffic seven fold in a decade. Our aim is to contribute to the economic and social development of Almaty region, creating employment and facilitating a global reach for local businesses. I would like to underline the supporting approach towards foreign investors in Kazakhstan and thank government officials, our partner, our lenders and employees who made this process as smooth as possible” External link

All airports in our portfolio have complied with the local and international regulations and recommendations put forward by respective authorities. As part of these efforts, we are happy to commit to the EASA charter, which provides a common set of guidelines for airports and airlines.

Sani Şener said : “The coronavirus pandemic and related precautions resulted in a decrease in passenger traffic at the airports we operate around the world. Due to the fact that we’re in the low season, the effect of this traffic decrease had a limited effect on our financial performance to date. On the other hand, the pandemic has serious implications for the global tourism and aviation industry and this has reflected negatively in our share price. In order to confirm our confidence in our company, our Board has decided to initiate a share buy-back up to TRY 200 million. We believe that the effects of the pandemic will be contained in coming weeks and the aviation industry will have a quick recovery, as we witnessed in prior incidents” External link

Sani Şener said ( about Adnan Menderes ) : "Today, we are inaugurating Domestic Terminal of Adnan Menderes Airport, which will be one of the most important terminal buildings of the region together with its connection to the international terminal that was also previously built by our company. Airports are the indications of the development level of the countries, as they are communal places. I believe that an airport, having LEED Certificate and using information technologies in the most possible way, is a very good representative of our country. As a company, we have never been after financial profits without considering our country's interests and social benefits. We will continue to consider these values during operation period as we did during the construction period. I would like to thank particularly our Prime Minister, and also Ministry of Transportation, State Airports Authority executives and employees, General Directorate of Civil Aviation, Local Authority of Adnan Menderes Airport, our project owner Professional Architect Yakup Hazan and the financing agencies the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Denizbank, Unicredit, Black Sea Trade and Development Bank and Siemens Bank.

Sani Şener said : "The axis of the world economy has been shifting towards the East which is an undeniable fact. We can say that the growth in the region will continue. To give examples from Atatürk Airport, we only had 10 million passengers when we began our operations in 2000. The airport currently serves 57 million passengers. We have experienced a significant acceleration. Furthermore, when we consider Atlanta Heathrow or Charles de Gaulle airports, their growth rate has been 1-2 per cent for many years. We can say that they are at saturation point. It is fair to say that the growth will continue in the regions. According to Airports Council International (ACI) data, there are 5 billion passengers worldwide at the moment. This figure will reach 10 billion in the following years. Most of the growth will be in the East. Both airlines and airports will grow but airports will become commercial enterprises rather than being infrastructure investments solely. According to the data of the sector players, there are new trends in the aviation sector. The number of point to point flights and new destinations will increase and the role of airports within transportation will expand" External link

This transaction constitutes a landmark deal in terms of size, importance and serving multiple purposes in the region as a company which operates 14 airports and provides services at 54 airports world-wide together with its service companies. In July 2014, TAV Milas Bodrum took over the domestic terminal's operations from DHMI.

Sani Şener stated : “becoming a partner at Sabiha Gökçen Airport is a bold strategic move for TAV, as Atatürk Airport is planned to be closed when the new airport will be put into service in Istanbul. It is the responsibility of TAV senior management to anticipate the termination of our Atatürk Airport operation by finding the opportunity to extend our footprint in Istanbul and to benefit fully from Istanbul’s traffic growth potential until at least 2030. Throughout the years, we have built a network of airports that are operated by TAV with a collaborative approach in Skopje, Ohrid, Tbilisi, Batumi, Riga, Enfidha, Monastir, Ankara, Izmir, Bodrum, and Gazipaşa. Especially, we have created a very strong synergy between Istanbul and Medinah. All these airport operations benefit from the scale and scope of the operations, services and know-hows of our main hub in Istanbul. It is the reason why having a presence at Sabiha Gökçen, which will become the second airport of Istanbul when the new airport opens, had become a must. With that context in mind, we have started negotiations with Limak, and reached an agreement. One of the major principles in business life is to take advantage of the context to put your company in a position to reach its long-term targets. There were rational reasons for both parties to meet on a common ground and reach an agreement: Limak has become a member of the consortium that won the new airport tender and aspires to focus on that project and TAV was willing to extend its foothold in Istanbul beyond 2021 as I mentioned before. If Malaysia Airports doesn’t use its right of first refusal, we would begin making contributions to the operations at Sabiha Gökçen, after receiving the required approvals. Having a presence in both Istanbul Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen Airports in the next 5-6 years will help raising productivity and enhancing services to the benefit of our airlines and passengers clients. There is a huge portfolio of airlines including some which could not get slots from Atatürk Airport and do not prefer to use Sabiha Gökçen. We are providing services to the majority of those airlines in our other airports as TAV and our ground handling services company Havaş has also good relationships with those parties. I am convinced we will be able to accommodate a higher number of flights in Istanbul airport system by leveraging this network. We can also offer a comfort zone at those airports for Turkish Airlines and other Turkish airline companies which achieved a massive growth in recent years. I believe there would be good collaborations. I am really looking forward joining our forces to those of Malaysia Airports, one of the most prominent airport operators in the world, and to contribute with our respective know-hows and assets to further accelerate the development of Sabiha Gökçen. We are convinced there could be further collaborations beyond Sabiha Gökçen with Malaysia Airports on other projects. I think that the intellectual asset and the social capital of these collaborations would be the most precious outcome. Our strategy is built on working for our country’s interests and the satisfaction of our employees, customers and investors. We are a company specialized in operating airports; we do not undertake any other projects and glad to utilize our capital stock on an airport in our country” External link

Therefore, we are proud that we have taken part in Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal project that re-defined the standards of the airport sector. One of the unique aspects of this prestigious project is its effective use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) that provides to predict the possible problems that may be encountered at a 3D working environment. TAV architects and engineers are amongst a few industry professionals who can implement BIM technology in a large scale project.

Sani Şener said : “We’re happy to add Almaty Airport, which is a main transit hub between Asia and Europe, to our portfolio. Almaty is strategically located on ‘the modern Silk Road’, established from China to Europe and Africa through air transport. Kazakhstan is the largest country in the region -both geographically and economically- and Almaty is the largest city in the country producing 20% of Kazakhstan’s GDP. We believe there’s a significant potential for growth in Almaty Airport, and drawing upon our extensive know-how, we’ll work towards realizing this potential to the fullest. As part of the largest airport management group globally, we’ll be promoting Almaty and Kazakhstan as the business capital of the region, as a country with a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourism opportunities. Our expertise in route development will help to increase the connectivity of Almaty to the world. As an example, in Georgia we doubled the number of destinations and increased passenger traffic seven fold in a decade. Our aim is to contribute to the economic and social development of Almaty region, creating employment and facilitating a global reach for local businesses. I would like to underline the supporting approach towards foreign investors in Kazakhstan and thank government officials, our partner, our lenders and employees who made this process as smooth as possible” External link

All airports in our portfolio have complied with the local and international regulations and recommendations put forward by respective authorities. As part of these efforts, we are happy to commit to the EASA charter, which provides a common set of guidelines for airports and airlines.

Sani Şener said : “The coronavirus pandemic and related precautions resulted in a decrease in passenger traffic at the airports we operate around the world. Due to the fact that we’re in the low season, the effect of this traffic decrease had a limited effect on our financial performance to date. On the other hand, the pandemic has serious implications for the global tourism and aviation industry and this has reflected negatively in our share price. In order to confirm our confidence in our company, our Board has decided to initiate a share buy-back up to TRY 200 million. We believe that the effects of the pandemic will be contained in coming weeks and the aviation industry will have a quick recovery, as we witnessed in prior incidents” External link

Sani Şener said ( about Adnan Menderes ) : "Today, we are inaugurating Domestic Terminal of Adnan Menderes Airport, which will be one of the most important terminal buildings of the region together with its connection to the international terminal that was also previously built by our company. Airports are the indications of the development level of the countries, as they are communal places. I believe that an airport, having LEED Certificate and using information technologies in the most possible way, is a very good representative of our country. As a company, we have never been after financial profits without considering our country's interests and social benefits. We will continue to consider these values during operation period as we did during the construction period. I would like to thank particularly our Prime Minister, and also Ministry of Transportation, State Airports Authority executives and employees, General Directorate of Civil Aviation, Local Authority of Adnan Menderes Airport, our project owner Professional Architect Yakup Hazan and the financing agencies the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Denizbank, Unicredit, Black Sea Trade and Development Bank and Siemens Bank. I congratulate all engineers, architects, technicians and workers contributed to the project and also TAV Construction, which finished the construction sooner than the required completion period, and which is elected as the second largest airport construction company of the world by ENR, one of the most prestigious engineering magazines of the world, following American Brechtel.

According to passenger traffic statistics for the year, Istanbul Ataturk Airport was the fourth busiest airport in Europe. In order to ensure uninterrupted passenger growth at Istanbul Ataturk, we began expanding this facility in cooperation with the State Airports Authority of Turkey (DHMİ).

I particularly mentioned how Turkish people acted to claim democracy on July 15th and how Atatürk Airport successfully hosted 100,000 people at that night acting as a center against a coup attempt. I believe, I explained the process accurately to the participants of this high-level meeting held at the capital city of European Union. I have had positive responses from all delegates.

Sani Şener said : "The axis of the world economy has been shifting towards the East which is an undeniable fact. We can say that the growth in the region will continue. To give examples from Atatürk Airport, we only had 10 million passengers when we began our operations in 2000. The airport currently serves 57 million passengers. We have experienced a significant acceleration. Furthermore, when we consider Atlanta Heathrow or Charles de Gaulle airports, their growth rate has been 1-2 per cent for many years. We can say that they are at saturation point. It is fair to say that the growth will continue in the regions. According to Airports Council International (ACI) data, there are 5 billion passengers worldwide at the moment. This figure will reach 10 billion in the following years. Most of the growth will be in the East. Both airlines and airports will grow but airports will become commercial enterprises rather than being infrastructure investments solely. According to the data of the sector players, there are new trends in the aviation sector. The number of point to point flights and new destinations will increase and the role of airports within transportation will expand" External link

This transaction constitutes a landmark deal in terms of size, importance and serving multiple purposes in the region as a company which operates 14 airports and provides services at 54 airports world-wide together with its service companies. In July 2014, TAV Milas Bodrum took over the domestic terminal's operations from DHMI. Our company will also take-over the rights of International Terminal on October 2015 from the current airport operator. Together with Domestic Terminal, TAV will operate the overall terminal facilities of Milas-Bodrum Airport until end of the 2035. We believe that Bodrum will become the fourth largest city in Turkey within the next 20 years. We are collaborating with all of our stakeholders in order to create a tourism activity all year round.

We will be transferring our know-how, gained through operating 14 airports in seven countries, to Bodrum. We believe that Bodrum will become the fourth largest city in Turkey within the next 15 to 20 years. With the experience and network that it currently possesses, TAV will comfortably increase the number of passengers to 10-15 million within the operation period. It will be easier for us to launch direct flights to Bodrum from major centers around the world if local tourism, hotel investors and the city get prepared for it.

We are glad to hear that our Madinah Project was also awarded the airport of the year title by MEED magazine. It is not a coincidence to be presented both of these awards at the same time. It is the payoff for the hard work of almost 54,000 TAV Group employees including engineers, architects, technicians and workers assigned in the projects achieved in Gulf Region, which has become the most challenging market of the world. TAV has become an expert and a popular brand in airport sector.

This increase was achieved on the back of both very strong organic and inorganic growth, playing an important role on the increase in passenger figures. While our existing airport portfolio grew 19%, the new additions to our portfolio in Medinah Airport and Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport Domestic Terminal in 2012 supplied another 16% of inorganic growth. We take a special pride in providing the quality of service associated with the TAV brand this year to our first Hajj guests in Medinah.

Sani Şener stated : “becoming a partner at Sabiha Gökçen Airport is a bold strategic move for TAV, as Atatürk Airport is planned to be closed when the new airport will be put into service in Istanbul. It is the responsibility of TAV senior management to anticipate the termination of our Atatürk Airport operation by finding the opportunity to extend our footprint in Istanbul and to benefit fully from Istanbul’s traffic growth potential until at least 2030. Throughout the years, we have built a network of airports that are operated by TAV with a collaborative approach in Skopje, Ohrid, Tbilisi, Batumi, Riga, Enfidha, Monastir, Ankara, Izmir, Bodrum, and Gazipaşa. Especially, we have created a very strong synergy between Istanbul and Medinah. All these airport operations benefit from the scale and scope of the operations, services and know-hows of our main hub in Istanbul. It is the reason why having a presence at Sabiha Gökçen, which will become the second airport of Istanbul when the new airport opens, had become a must. With that context in mind, we have started negotiations with Limak, and reached an agreement. One of the major principles in business life is to take advantage of the context to put your company in a position to reach its long-term targets. There were rational reasons for both parties to meet on a common ground and reach an agreement: Limak has become a member of the consortium that won the new airport tender and aspires to focus on that project and TAV was willing to extend its foothold in Istanbul beyond 2021 as I mentioned before. If Malaysia Airports doesn’t use its right of first refusal, we would begin making contributions to the operations at Sabiha Gökçen, after receiving the required approvals. Having a presence in both Istanbul Atatürk and Sabiha Gökçen Airports in the next 5-6 years will help raising productivity and enhancing services to the benefit of our airlines and passengers clients. There is a huge portfolio of airlines including some which could not get slots from Atatürk Airport and do not prefer to use Sabiha Gökçen. We are providing services to the majority of those airlines in our other airports as TAV and our ground handling services company Havaş has also good relationships with those parties. I am convinced we will be able to accommodate a higher number of flights in Istanbul airport system by leveraging this network. We can also offer a comfort zone at those airports for Turkish Airlines and other Turkish airline companies which achieved a massive growth in recent years. I believe there would be good collaborations. I am really looking forward joining our forces to those of Malaysia Airports, one of the most prominent airport operators in the world, and to contribute with our respective know-hows and assets to further accelerate the development of Sabiha Gökçen. We are convinced there could be further collaborations beyond Sabiha Gökçen with Malaysia Airports on other projects. I think that the intellectual asset and the social capital of these collaborations would be the most precious outcome. Our strategy is built on working for our country’s interests and the satisfaction of our employees, customers and investors. We are a company specialized in operating airports; we do not undertake any other projects and glad to utilize our capital stock on an airport in our country” External link

Sani Şener stated : "Large airport investments require high level of technological competence, engineering and organization skills. TAV has been focused on airport construction and operations since its foundation. We have aimed to specialize in these business lines and become one of the world's highly-preferred brands. Therefore, we are proud that we have taken part in Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal project that re-defined the standards of the airport sector. One of the unique aspects of this prestigious project is its effective use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) that provides to predict the possible problems that may be encountered at a 3D working environment. TAV architects and engineers are amongst a few industry professionals who can implement BIM technology in a large scale project. The know-how we possess and high-quality human resource are most important assets of TAV.

The investments DHMİ undertook in the apron area increased the airport’s aircraft parking capacity by 25% as of November 2014. A 42% total increase in parking capacity will result as these investments are finalized in 2015. Meanwhile, TAV Airports will initiate approximately €75 million investment to increase the capacity of the international terminal. The terminal extension projects will be completed in 2016” External link

Sani Şener explained ( about Saudi ) : “Medinah Airport in Saudi Arabia continued to perform brilliantly with 22% growth in passenger traffic in 2014. The new terminal building that will go into service in first quarter 2015 will remove all roadblocks to this airport’s future growth. As rapid expansion also continued at our airports in Georgia and Macedonia in 2014, we extended our airport portfolio to encompass Eastern Europe by taking a 15% equity stake in the consortium that operates Zagreb Airport in 2013. This year we expect to learn the result of the tender for the operation of New York LaGuardia Airport in the United States that we had bid on in 2014” External link

Sani Şener stated : “In the coming period, our growth will be built on three pillars: Organic growth at our existing airports, growth from new airport additions to our portfolio, and the growth prospects of our service companies outside of TAV Group. We will move forward in all three areas without compromising the high performance we have demonstrated to date. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our shareholders and business partners for placing their trust in us as well as our employees for their dedicated efforts and hard work” External link
