Istanbul's parking corporation, İSPARK, has announced that three new "heliports" will be opened in 2015.
Heliports have previously been opened in Kadıköy and Kısıklı on Istanbul's Asian side. İSPARK plans to increase the number of heliports, and equip helicopter landing fields with waiting lounges.
Additional heliports will also be opened in Sütlice, Şişli and Yenikapı on the European side in 2015, while additional heliports are planned in Kartal, İstinye and Yenikapı.
With the new heliports, İSPARK plans to introduce its air taxi service, and scheduled flights between heliports.
Kadıköy Heliport has handled over a thousand landings since its opening, including commercial and tourist flights, patient and organ transfers, and traffic reporting.
