AAA Air Support Is International – TurkeyMatt Kerster
AAA Air Support has a distinguished reputation as a significant part of the growing international aerospace industry.
Building on their established leadership in the domestic aerospace market, AAA Air Support is making great strides in the global aerospace and aviation market, as well.
In the realm of international aerospace players, the United States continues to lead the world when it comes to the sheer number of its airports and aircraft.
For example, according to data from Statista,
“In 2020, the United States contributed some 80.9 billion U.S. dollars in aerospace exports. Thus, making it the leading country in terms of aerospace exports. The country is home to some of the leading manufacturers in the aerospace sector, including Boeing and Lockheed Martin.”
Along with the United States, there are dozens of nations in the world with both domestic and international airports, along with varying degrees of aerospace and aviation industry participation.
And, along with the leading nations such as the United States, there are also several other large commercial aviation markets across the globe, including Turkey.
Aerospace Industry in Turkey
The growing passenger traffic in the country is propelling the demand for new commercial aircraft, according to Mordor Intelligence, from the airlines operating in the country like Turkish Airlines, SunExpress, Pegasus Airlines, Onur Air, Corendon Airlines, and Anadolujet,
One result of this growing passenger traffic is an increasing demand for new commercial aircraft in the country.
According to the International Trade Administration’s website, some of the most prominent opportunities for U.S. aerospace exporters and supplies include aircraft (rotary and fixed wing) parts and components, as well as:
● Electronics / avionic parts and components
● Engines, engine parts and components
At the start of 2022, according to an article from Daily Sabah, Turkey celebrated,
“…the opening of some 16 new factories at the Ankara Aerospace and Aviation Specialized (HAB) Organized Industrial Zone (OIZ), which continues its activities on an area of 730 hectares (1,804 acres) right next to TAI as Turkey’s first specialized OIZ in the defense industry.
HAB aims to support the domestic industry in the fields of space flight and aviation, bringing together local and foreign companies to create synergy, and to produce high value-added products and increase exports.”
The Daily Sabah story went on to report that as of January 2022, there were 18 facilities in the HAB OIZ that had been completed and invested in by industrialists, and 57 facilities that were still under construction.
When the Ankara Aerospace and Aviation Specialized (HAB) Organized Industrial Zone is completed, it will host 300 enterprises, 150 of which will be industrial enterprises, and close to 15,000 people will be employed.
