The crisis managements during the terrorist attack to Istanbul Atatürk Airport and July 15th coup attempt were indicated to be exemplary at the conference organised by Airports Council International.

TAV Airports President & CEO Sani Şener made the opening speech at the conference titled "Security and Crisis Management" organised by Airports Council International (ACI) Europe, the global platform of airport operators. Held in Brussels, the capital city of the European Union, the two-day conference gathered senior executives and experts on security, transportation and anti-terrorism issues from all around the continent.

Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Security and Home Affairs Jan Jambon, ACI Europe Director General Olivier Jankovec, Brussels Airport CEO Arnaud Feist, Deputy Administrator of the US Transportation Security Administration Huban Gowadia, Council of the European Union Director of Security Francis Morgan as well as Sani Şener were among the guest speakers of the conference.

Şener also remarked the details of events occurred at the airport during July 15th coup attempt.

TAV Airports President & CEO Şener said: "TAV is representing Turkey effectively on every occasion. 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. I believe, I explained the process accurately to the participants of this high-level meeting held at the capital city of European Union. I have had positive responses from all delegates. Atatürk Airport has been an exemplary case underlining the significance of taking collaborative action for both private sector and public institutions in crisis management."
