Turkish Airlines awards the construction of a cargo facility to Gaptek
The cargo facility will be located in the Istanbul New Airport (IGA) and it will be used for cargo operations by Turkish Airlines (THY) Cargo.
It will serve as a satellite for the THY Main Cargo Facility, which is currently under construction, and its main purpose will be to offer internal logistic services for THY Cargo.
For the execution of the project, Gaptek collaborates with multinational companies such as ARUP and Kaylon for the project management.
The main aspects to be highlighted from the project are the short delivery and assembly times with which Gaptek responds to the THY’s urgent needs. In addition, the structure is made of aluminum and composed of frames joined by purlins, and a double skin composed of exterior corrugated sheet metal panels and interior sandwich panels.
As well as the rest of Gaptek’s products, the Cargo Facility is demountable and relocatable, which offers the possibility to be transported and relocated in another location to cover future needs.
There are two office zones for 200 employees inside the facility, as well as a rack area, an export/transit operations area and a domestic and mailing operations area.
The facility is designed in order that one side of the building is intended to receive or unload cargo via landside transport, and the opposite side, via airside transport.
The Istanbul New Airport started its construction in 2013 on a 76,5 million sqm surface located in the north of Istanbul, 35 km away from the city center. Once its construction is finished, the airport will have the capacity to host 200 million passengers per year and flights to more than 350 destinations.
