Kaner Group is the first of a number of local companies anticipated to be included in future partnerships with Tasyapi, the Turkish Terminal Consortium.
Tasyapi Terminal Consortium won the tender to operate Ercan airport for 25 years in October 2012. As one of the largest construction companies in Turkey, Tasyapi has experience in major projects both in Turkey and overseas.
This business takeover from the previously state run airport reflects the conditions stipulated in the new economic package recently signed with Turkey, however, it was specified that local companies could tender for partnership in the newly privatised Ercan airport. The airport will be transformed into a “world class facility” with a new terminal, underground parking and also a hotel. Construction work is likely to commence in January 2013.
