Turkey Third Istanbul Airport Reverse Trade Mission

Dates: Winter 2013/2014

Locations: TBD

USTDA is sponsoring a reverse trade mission (RTM) to the United States of the senior project managers for the Turkish consortium that has been awarded the concession to build the new third Istanbul airport.  This $10+ billion airport will have an initial capacity of at least 70 million passengers and when the final phase is constructed a capacity of 110+ million passengers.

The delegation will visit the United States for one week in the winter of 2013/2014 and will visit large U.S. airports in order to see U.S. aviation and safety and security technologies in place, as well as to understand best practices in airport construction, operation and management.  There will be a Business Briefing at which U.S. companies will learn from the consortium about the timing, procedure and nature of the procurement plans for the new airport.
