“The Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications is working on this issue. If we can open the airport as part of this study, I believe that we will open it, Edirne will really fly. The aviation industry is the fastest growing industry in the world. Everyone, from the pilot to the ground handling personnel, from the cabin crew to the hostess. We can train thousands of people here. What makes Edirne attractive is the high Istanbul traffic. They also investigated. In particular, Atlas Jet said they saw that there was no more suitable place in the region.
