BUILD-OPERATE-TRANSFER PROJECTS

The Atatürk Airport International Terminal is one of the most important projects that DHMİ has undertaken. The Atatürk Airport's BOT project consisted of an international terminal building, a multi-story car park and complements. The total cost of this project was 400 million USD. The company TAV operated the terminal from 10 January, 2000 to 2 July, 2005.

The 264,000 m2 terminal building in this project, has a capacity of 20 million passengers per year, and its terminal comprises 23 passenger gates, 224 check-in desks, restaurants, a bar and duty-free shops serving for the comfort of the passengers. In addition, the project comprises a heating center, spare energy center, trash refinery, water tank, additional apron and 7076 car capacity multi-story car park, all equipped with the most up to date systems.

The operation of İstanbul Atatürk Airport International Terminal has been a great success. The terminal's operation by TAV ended on 2 July, 2005. Prior to this date, very difficult procedures were completed in order to give the private sector operational rights, both at İstanbul and the other BOT terminals, via tenders, and finally the necessary legal applications were made.

Therefore, the operational rights of all the BOT terminals, the operation periods of which have expired, have been allowed to be transferred to private sector companies.

In the first application, following the tender, the operational rights for the İstanbul Atatürk Airport Domestic and International Passenger Terminals have been transferred to TAV for 15 and a half years with a lease amount of 3 billion USD.

Another important BOT model project is Antalya Airport International Lines Terminal Building and complements. The construction works of the new International Lines Terminal Building and complements was put out to tender to serve 5 million international line passengers in 1993.

The 54,000 m2 terminal opened to service on 1 April, 1998. It comprises 12 passenger gates, 60 check-in desks, restaurants, a bar and duty-free shops serving for the comfort of the passengers. In addition, the project has a 725 capacity multi-story car park. The total cost of this project was 65 million USD, and the operating company is Antalya Airport International Terminal Management, who will operate the terminal for 9 years. The terminal will return back to DHMİ on 15 September, 2007. Because of the immense increase in the number of international passenger, the new international terminal has turned out to be inadequate, and a second terminal building was constructed under the BOT model and was given to service on 7 April, 2005.

The 91,454 m2 terminal building comprises 12 passenger gates, 45 check-in desks, restaurants, a bar and duty-free shops serving for the comfort of the passengers. In addition, the project has a 750 capacity multi-story car park. The total cost of this project was 85.5 million USD.

The terminal will return back to DHMİ on 28 September, 2009.
