Boeing announced a new Technical Assistance Agreement with iGA Havalimani Isletmesi, the developer and operator of Istanbul New Airport. Through the agreement, Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen will provide its Total Airport and Airspace Modeler (TAAM) solution to assist IGA and DHMI, Turkey’s General Directorate of State Airports Authority.

This group will support the development of Istanbul New Airport airspace design, the airport operation optimization program and an operational readiness plan.

“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,” said Aysem Sargin, managing director of Boeing Turkey.

The state of the art Jeppesen TAAM analysis tool will be used with the IGA and DHMI teams to conduct studies that would potentially maximize Istanbul New Airport runway operations and overall airspace capacity and efficiency. 

Several operational procedure alternatives will be simulated and analyzed by TAAM to assist the new airport’s airspace and runway optimization process. Both IGA and DHMI will be trained to use the TAAM solution, allowing active participation in the project.
