Ersin Inankul, Chief Digital and Commercial Officer of iGA Istanbul Airport said: “Our primary goal for iGA Istanbul Airport is to carry this unique structure far beyond the point of just being a journey, and transforming our guests’ journeys into unforgettable experiences.

“Accordingly, we continue to work and plan every detail so that all our guests can leave iGA Istanbul Airport feeling completely satisfied from the very first moment that they set foot in the airport. Within this context, we have now opened the ‘Youth Lounge’, a project that we have been working on for a long time, and which is specifically geared towards our youth.

“We have thought of every detail in the ‘Youth Lounge’ to provide more entertainment for our youngsters and for them to utilise their pre-flight time more effectively. The lounge, which students from Boğaziçi University and Istanbul University also contributed to during the design stage, is a way for the dreams of youngsters to come true. We have future plans to turn this space into a focal point for the youth.”

He added: “We have designed seating and entertainment areas in line with social distancing, and numerous products and services such as games, music broadcasts and book-reading, as well as a good selection of snacks and coffee which are suitably priced for younger people, in a manner which is in keeping with the conditions of the pandemic.”
