Yildirim underlined that the next stages will have approximately 150-200 million passengers and stated that, ” An injustice was done for us while we were planning the airport to build. We heard comments like that we are dreaming of a 150 million passenger capacity airport which will be the biggest in the world and that we were exaggerating this kind of things. But at the end we see what kind of a work we are doing here. More than 60 cranes are working at the same time. 3 thousand working machines and and close to 14 thousand workers.”
This place is in itself a city. In the following days they are going to be more than 35 thousand workers here. The workers who work here stay in the town here.This place is as a capacity bigger than the biggest Syrian Camp and ordinary as well because its an area arranged with everything. That’s why the workers work and rest here at the same time. Everybody works here as they have to and comply the law. Also the ground motion here is nowhere seen in any other place around the world.
