Mr. Özen has an extensive knowledge of the territories surrounding Turkey, having overseen business development in the Balkans, Middle East, and African regions. In a statement a member of TIACA said, “Because Turhan will be present on the ground as this major project works towards completion, his insight will prove invaluable to the TIACA Board and its members.”

Earlier this month Turkish Airlines moved all operations from Ataturk Airport to the new Istanbul Airport, an undertaking called the “Great Move” by the airline. The new airport, due for completion in 2027, will be the busiest hub in the world, with six runways boosting capacity for cargo.

“The air cargo industry requires effective leadership to manage the changes demanded by continuously diversified customer needs,” said Mr. Özen. “That leadership needs to be the clear manifestation of the common will to enable us to establish well-functioning processes and a sustainable future vision. I believe that my Board membership at TIACA will contribute to this leadership in terms of a positive way for the change and for the development of the international air cargo sector.”
