“We must see and admit that there will be the [world’s] largest airport in Istanbul,” he added, referring to the new Istanbul Airport, which opened last fall and is planned to be a major new hub.

Saying he feels like home in Istanbul, Wulff cited Napoleon's comment: "If the world was a single country, its capital would be Istanbul." ■
