Istanbul Atatürk Airport on Google Street View
Istanbul Atatürk Airport is the first airport added to Google Street View in Turkey with a panoramic 360 degree map.
Istanbul Atatürk Airport is now accessible in the virtual world by Google Street View under the guidance of TAV Information Technologies, a leading global brand in airport IT services and solutions. With the Google Street View application, which displays a panoramic 360 degree map drawn using thousands of photographs taken at the terminals, Istanbul Atatürk Airport became the first airport from Turkey to be added to the platform, which includes more than 50 subways, bus stations and 16 airports worldwide.
TAV Airports President & CEO Sani Şener stated: "We are happy to experience another breakthrough in Turkey and carry out that project as part of our mission to implement passenger-friendly, innovative airport projects in order to raise passenger satisfaction to the highest level. TAV Airports is planning to expand this free application, which will enable passengers to plan their journeys more efficiently by obtaining detailed information on the airport as well as the other airports TAV operates. Accomplishing this project with TAV Information Technologies, a TAV Airports subsidiary that has become a global brand in hardware and software solutions in the aviation industry, TAV is able to offer an even faster, safer and more comfortable travel experience to passengers thanks to this application. We will continue developing such innovative projects in accordance with the requirements and feedback of the passengers."
The application can be accessed by simply visiting Google Maps online and writing “Istanbul Atatürk Airport” in the search box. When the page opens, you see a yellow human figure that will assist you, and if this yellow sign is dragged onto the map some areas turn blue. These areas are the ones available on the Street View. Visitors can begin exploring by dragging the yellow figure to the area they would like to view more closely.
