Stating that they will continue on their way decisively, Akçayoğlu emphasized that the speed of the airport construction is increasing gradually and that they aim to reach a physical speed of around 24-4 percent especially in the summer months. Akçayoğlu said, “This pace of progress is very important for such big projects. We spent 5/3 as resources, but not all of the resource transfer is immediately reflected in physical progress. We can say that 30 percent of the first stage of the airport is completed ”. Noting that they will finish the airport in February 2018, Akçayoğlu gave the following information: “We currently have 17 employees and this number is increasing. We accelerated the night work a little more. In this sense, we met with subcontractors. Although nighttime production and daytime production are not the same, we want to equalize the pace of progress by increasing the number of employees at night. Our number of employees will increase and will be updated every month. Our prediction is to reach 500 thousand employees at the peak of the business.
