President Erdoğan Inaugurates Arnavutköy-Istanbul Airport Metro Line

​President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan addressed the opening ceremony of Arnavutköy-Istanbul Airport Metro Line via videoconference.

President Erdoğan expressed optimism that Istanbul's new metro line would bring prosperity, saying, "With the project we are commissioning today, we will provide Istanbul with nearly 162 kilometers of rail system just since the opening of Istanbul Airport. This brings the total length of the rail system network in our city to 362 kilometers."

Stating that the length of the operational line is 14 kilometers, comprising four stations, President Erdoğan elaborated: “Thanks to this line, travel from Arnavutköy to the airport will take only 8 minutes. Additionally, the new phase inaugurated will serve to connect Arnavutköy to the Gayrettepe-Kâğıthane-Istanbul Airport line, reducing travel time from Arnavutköy to Gayrettepe to just 41 minutes. Within a year, our aim is to activate the phase of this project towards Halkalı, finalizing the 69-kilometer-long rail system ring line in Türkiye."

President Erdoğan underscored that Istanbul's metros adhere to the highest international standards, showcasing continuous enhancement with every new project in terms of design and travel comfort.
