Detur has joined Corendon, to start charter flights to Gazipasa. The majority of the Dutch people flying to the Turkish riviera, choose this small, but already so important airport.
Transavia renew their contract, this time for their Boeing 737-800 fly. 9th of May the first plane is landing at Gazipasa airport - coming from the Netherlands.
Gazipasa Airport got in 2012 permission for Boeing 7373-800 to land at the airport. Corendon was the first company to use this permission 04.04.2012.
The airplane from the Netherlands was wished welcome in the same honourable way as Transavia experienced in 2011. These international routes have a huge financial effect on the Alanya district.
History is written in Gazipasa »
The association Mahmutlar Dostluk Dernegi (Mahmutlar Friends) arranged a trip to watch the first international landing in Gazipasa. With a large and a small bus, arrived at a solid delegation from MDD of what once was pasture for cattle. Several members also followed in separate cars.
What met us was the first well-organized airport. In addition, the arrangement was in an upper class. Anyone who found their way to the airport this special day got VIP treatment. Great drinks, canapes, Turkish delights, beautiful music - the atmosphere was unforgettable.
We checked that the plane had left from Schiphol on time. The landing was made 20.15. Ten minutes late so we get the plane. The lights from it, was like a shooting star - for us who have waited many years. A wish was about to be fulfilled. A desire that not only means short distance to the holiday paradise, but also will have enormous consequences for the area's economy both now and for the future.
Before the landing the plane circled two laps of honour over the airport before landing. Boeing 737-700 aircraft - needed only half the runway length. This day had optimal landing conditions. It was a pleasure to note that many people's concern about the length of the runway can now pass into history.
All attendees showed immense pleasure over the incident. One could clearly see the special relationship Turks and Europeans have - in terms of total strangers hugged and congratulated each other. The atmosphere cannot be described. It had to be experienced.
So it was to receive the first passengers. Some looked a little confused. There was not anyone who thought that they were on a maiden voyage. But they got some pleasant surprises. Not only in the form of cheers from the audience. Baskets of gifts were handed out to everyone. And a number of the attendees also received flowers to bring home.
CONGRATULATIONS, Alanya district!
CONGRATULATIONS, Mahmutlar Friends!
