About

The Istanbul Hub is a project of the Faculty of Aviation at Ozyegin University in the vibrant city of Istanbul. The aim from the beginning, back in 2013, was to create a platform to discuss on the aviation developments of Istanbul.

The city was composed of two airports: its new  airport which is Istanbul Airport   (ISL – on the European Side of Istanbul) and Sabiha International  Airport (SAW – on the Asian side of Istanbul) that has been one of the fastest growing airports in the recent years. 

The evolution of the air transport industry and its future implications in the aviation map of Istanbul is discussed on a yearly basis by industry and academic experts. The seminar is organized by the Faculty of Aviation with active involvement from students from different disciplines. The Istanbul Hub Seminar looks at the topic from different angles and tries to answer some important questions:
