Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Ahmet Arslan, regarding the date of Çukurova Airport's commencement of service, "Let's have corrected a false perception, the other day there was a news saying" Çukurova Airport remained at 2021 ", in fact I wonder where this came from." said.
Underlining that they care about Çukurova Airport, Arslan said:
“Things are going well in the infrastructure, it has speeded up a lot. By the beginning of 2019, we will have completed the infrastructure completely. We tendered the superstructure including the terminal building. We are talking about a terminal that is 229 thousand square meters in domestic and international lines. As of yesterday, the contract has been signed and I hope we will deliver the place and start work next Monday. It will accelerate very soon. I hope we will finish in a year and ensure that Çukurova Airport becomes very modern in Mersin, Adana and Osmaniye in 2019. ”
Providing information about the runways at the airport, Arslan said, “There will be a 3 meters long and 500 meters wide runway at Çukurova Airport, which means that the world's largest aircraft, the A60, can land. Right next to it, there will be an 'emergency track' again. That track will be a second track, which is 380 meters long and 3 meters wide. We will also serve the citizens with 500 bridges, so when the citizen arrives at the airport, it will be able to pass to the terminal by direct bridge, regardless of summer or winter, without getting wet, getting off the plane. said.
