Boeing announced a new Technical Assistance Agreement with iGA Havalimani Isletmesi A.S. (IGA), 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.

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

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. Maintaining safety and minimizing airspace conflict within the regional Istanbul Terminal Control Area is another key aspect of the project.

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, as well as the ability to conduct their own continuing analysis projects, following the successful delivery of Jeppesen’s analysis.
