Only one of the four stages of the Istanbul Airport, which is in operation, will be paid due to passenger guarantees in the unopened stages.
SözcüAccording to Basak Kaya, CHP Kocaeli Deputy Haydar Akar, the company does not open the other stages of the passenger guarantee fee, he said. Akar stated that Istanbul Airport was tendered with build-operate-transfer model and reminded that the airport was tendered with 25 billion 22 million Euro plus VAT for 152 years of operation. Akar said:
Devlet The government provided a 61 percent guarantee for the new airport. Excise duty, VAT, customs exemption were also provided. The guaranteed passenger fare at all BOT airports is 15 Euros on international lines and 20 Euros here. 3-2 Euro at domestic airports and 5 Euro here. The airport consists of 4 stages. Stages 3 and 4 will be done depending on the situation of 1 and 2. So it's not clear if it's done yet. If a congestion occurs, the firm will build stages 3 and 4, and if not, it will not. ”
The operator will get his money
Haydar Akar emphasized that the guaranteed passenger amounts will be built considering that the 3rd and 4th stages will be built. “Individual passenger accounts have been made for these stages. The first stage will have a capacity of 70 million passengers. After the second stage, passenger capacity will be 2 million. If 90 million stuck, the third stage will be built and a capacity of 90 million will come. If Stage 3 gets stuck, Stage 20 will be built. Even if they are not made, the operating companies will get their money. As a result of agreements on the number of vehicles you guarantee and the exchange you provide, the government cannot raise money for operators. You build a tunnel the same way. We encounter the same picture on land and in the air. ”
