TURKEY | Istanbul | Istanbul Atatürk Airport


A ground support facility at Istanbul Atatürk Airport, supporting trips throughout Turkey

Gokmen Sendag

Welcome to Turkey!

MERHABA and welcome to Istanbul, the city of the past, the present and the future. Istanbul not only joins continents; it also joins cultures and people. Istanbul is one of the most visited and important places in the world.

We decided to base our Turkey headquarters at Ataturk International Airport (LTBA) because it is now the best airport option for business aviation operators in Istanbul. With no commercial traffic, arrivals, departure, and taxi times are significantly faster. LTBA is also much more conveniently located to Istanbul’s city center, and provides greater operational flexibility in terms of both parking, slots, scheduled maintenance options, and customer preference to the airport’s general aviation terminal.

You will find our staff is professional, provides exceptional service, fast parking confirmations and response times and transparent pricing. By directly providing ground supervision for our clients throughout Turkey, with our own professionals trained to our global standards, we are better positioned to reduce the inherent operating risks and ensure the success of your missions.

We look forward to supporting your next mission to Turkey.
