In an effort to work more efficiently with Turkish officials and customers, officers from Boeing, which has a significant presence in South Carolina, recently inked a new technical assistance agreement with iGA Havalimani Isletmesi A.S. (IGA), the company charged with development and operations at Turkey's Istanbul New Airport.
Under the terms of the agreement Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen will provide support to IGA, as well as to the Turkish general directorate of state airports authority DHMI, through its Total Airport and Airspace Modeler (TAAM) solution.
TAAM is an analysis tool on which IGA and DHMI team members will be trained. With it, teams from IGA and DHMI will do studies to streamline the airport's runway operations and overall airspace capacity, while at the same time enhancing safety and decreasing airspace conflicts.
“We look forward to working with IGA and DHMI to find the most effective operational concepts for the Istanbul area, as part of the overall investment in the infrastructure of Turkish aerospace,” Aysem Sargin, managing director of Boeing Turkey, said. “Using our TAAM tool, we will be able to show the impacts of all operational concepts and assist the Istanbul New Airport team to make the most informed decisions possible for the new airport.”
