İstanbul Havalimanı | Hava Trafik Kontrol Kulesi

By | January 28, 2020


You are now at the flight control center inside the air traffic control tower of Istanbul Airport. We work here round the clock to ensure that aircraft can land and take off safely and quickly. We control 1,200 flights each day. This figure actually multiplies as Istanbul is a hub for transit flights connecting the East to the West and vice versa. We are experienced to manage this traffic.We take our work very seriously. There is no room for mistakes in this profession. As the direction of the wind has changed, we will now switch from the northern configuration to the southern configuration. From 210 to 18, it says we landed right at the limit. We discuss this situation with the meteorology department. We then talk with our air traffic controller friends in approach control. We will determine the latest take-off traffic on the northern configuration and switch runways. Guys, runway 34 and runway 35 must be cleared before 1598 lands. Now, we adjust the configuration for our chosen runway. This way, the same information will be uploaded to all devices. As we switch runways, we will change our devices and lights. Our controllers will also be relocated from the boards they currently work at to other boards. We will then start working on the southern configuration. Follow me, this is the tower.
