Airporthaber.com claims that according to their reliable sources Turkish Airlines will take over running Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW) from the current company "Malaysia Airports" for US$1,2 Billion.

The second runway for SAW is currently being built and will be ready next year. With recent additional terminal building opening, the capacity of SAW reached to 41 million pax per year. It is estimated with the opening second runway, the capacity will increase further to 63 million pax per year.

The chairman of THY has neither denied nor confirmed when the media asked him about this news during their recent press meeting.

Pegasus that is the main competitor to THY in Turkey uses SAW as their main hub and is the biggest client of SAW airport.

Well there is probably reasons to worry for some Very Stable Genius if the Very Great Sultan decides to switch off the power to Incirlik as he did for 5 days in July 2016.

Look at the map if you want to understand politics used to say Alexandre de Marenches.
If VGS kicks out VSG and goes to bed with Czar Vladimir, it leaves the USAF with a large gap between say Aviano and Al Udeid after the closure of Incirlik and Dyarbakir.
On their way back, they may drop (just a way of speaking ;) ) the 50 of so B-61s to Kleine Brogel. The 701 MunSS should be able to find some accommodation in their, correction our, shelters.

Sometimes you see a label "Don't let within reach of children", but what when they grow up ?
In age I mean. :mrgreen:
