ISTANBUL, January 19, 2020

Turkey has launched work on a new high-speed metro line project, connecting the heart of Istanbul to the new mega Istanbul Airport, local media reported. 
 
Attending the first rail welding ceremony of the Gayrettepe-Istanbul Airport Metro Project, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the transportation link will be the country's fastest metro line, Anadolu news agency said. 
 
The new line, which is planned to be completed by August 2021, will transport passengers from Gayrettepe, in Sisli, on the Turkish metropolis' European side, to the new airport in just 35 minutes, covering 37.5 km through nine stops, he said.
