Civil aviation is booming in Turkey and Turks are frequent flyers. Turkish airports handled a record number of passengers in 2017, exceeding 190 million. Turkey's strategic location ensures unrivaled advantages in airline, MRO, cargo and air taxi services in the region. With the opening of the New Istanbul Airport, Turkey will become a regional hub for air transportation.

Over $10 billion was allocated in the 2018 defense budget, with 50% to be spent on goods, services and modernization programs. Turkey is a partner country in the Joint Strike Fighter Program, while the Turkish Air Force is the third largest operator of the F-16. Turkey's military is among the world's 10 strongest and the country is a growing hub for defense and aerospace companies interested in markets in the Middle East and North Africa.
