BUILD-OPERATE-TRANSFER PROJECTS

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

By this, the operational rights of all the BOT terminals, the 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 Istanbul Atatürk Airport Domestic and International Passenger Terminals have been transferred to TAV for 15.5 years with a lease amount of US$3 billion.

Another important BOT model project is the Antalya Airport International Lines Terminal Building and its 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.

In addition, the project has a 725 capacity multi-story car park. The total cost of this project was US$65 million, and the operating company is Antalya Airport International Terminal Management, who will operate the terminal for nine years. The terminal will return back to the DHMi on 15 September 2007. Because of the immense increase in the number of international passengers, the new international terminal has become inadequate, and a second terminal building was constructed under the BOT model, entering into service on 7 April 2005.
