The Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) has today launched a new international advertising campaign to announce the opening of Istanbul New Airport, which commenced operations on 29th October 2018. The global campaign is being managed by Turkey Promotion Group (TPG), an agency of the Turkish Ministry of Trade responsible for promoting Turkey's economy and investment potential, and highlights the power of Turkish exporters and the potential available to them through increased cargo capacity and an advanced logistics infrastructure.

Launched on the 95th anniversary of the republic of Turkey under the slogan "As the world gets smaller, Turkish exports continue to grow", the campaign highlights the new airport’s role in enabling Turkish exports to reach an expanding list of global destinations from the airport’s logistics hub.

Attending the grand opening TIM Chairman Ismail Gülle said: "We are celebrating the 95th anniversary of our Republic today with the opening of Istanbul New Airport. As the voice of Turkey's export family, TIM is delighted with the launch of the new airport, and we are grateful to all those who contributed to delivering this masterpiece. As Turkish exporters we are excited by the prospect of this new airport. Strength in exports comes from being able to deliver on time and by focusing on logistics – and having the right infrastructure in place will keep us ahead of the competition."

Gülle stressed that Istanbul New Airport would place Turkey at the forefront of the global export market, continuing: "Our new airport will enable us to break records, with 1.6m square metres of logistics space and 5.5m tonnes of cargo capacity, it will allow us to bring more Turkish products around the world to more destinations with shorter delivery times. This is a gamechanger – an exciting day for Turkey and for global trade."
