Istanbul Airport Link

One of the most spectacular infrastructure projects

The new Istanbul airport is to be opened as one of the world's largest airports next year. London-Heathrow, currently Europe's largest airport, will be replaced as the front-runner, making Turkey the main hub.

The new airport is being built on an area of 76 million square meters in northern Turkey, approximately 35 kilometers from the city center. Parallel to the construction of the airport, the 34-kilometer subway system, consisting of two parallel tunnel tubes with seven stations, is to be built.

H + E Logistic GmbH will supply a total of 10 tunnel belt conveyor systems with a total length of 60 km.
