During this conference on crisis management, I told about you how TAV handled the crises occurred at the airport with the support of the government. I particularly mentioned how Turkish people acted to claim democracy on July 15th and how Atatürk Airport successfully hosted 100,000 people at that night acting as a center against a coup attempt.
