Esenboğa Airport had 1 million passengers in 2002. Today this number has increased to 8.5 million, and the number of planes that take off and land here every day is 300, up from 80 in 2002. The Esenboğa Airport General Aviation Terminal has been needed; it provides the necessary infrastructure for private jet service. These terminals serve private jets throughout the world. We began this project in Ankara after Istanbul, Izmir and Antalya, in order to level our country with other modern countries. These projects will be conducted continually in order to reach the level of modern civilization toward which Atatürk pointed. I wish the General Aviation Terminal to be beneficial to all.”

We are more than thrilled to open the General Aviation Terminal here today, the 4th we have opened throughout Turkey."

TAV Airports CEO Sani Şener added: “We work nonstop to bring Esenboğa Airport to a level which symbolizes Turkey’s greatness since it is the entrance of the capital city of Ankara and constitutes its new and modern face. We succeeded in increasing passenger numbers by 10 percent and flight numbers by 14 percent last year. Our target is to transform Esenboğa into a hub in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. At the new General Aviation Terminal we will host businessmen and businesswomen coming to Ankara, a city which has become a center of attraction center in the region, with TAV’s privileged service approach known in six countries and 12 airports today. We would like to thank the Minister for opening the path for the aviation sector with his vision as well as the managers at DHMI for their harmonious cooperation with us, which has been going on for years now."
