SAHA Istanbul Defence, Aviation and Space Clustering Association has become the largest industrial cluster in Europe as of the first half of 2022. The organisation has 816 companies and 22 universities as its members, and it announced the development on July 8. İlhami Keleş, Secretary General of SAHA Istanbul has shared the following on the development: “We were the second largest cluster in European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP) after Airbus. This month, with the companies that were accepted by our executive board, SAHA Istanbul surpassed Airbus’ Aerospace Valley in Toulouse. We are now the biggest cluster in Europe. Our national defence and aerospace industry is rising in the international arena and as SAHA Istanbul we are contributing intensely to this rise. SAHA Istanbul being the largest industrial cluster in Europe will strengthen Türkiye’s position in defence and aerospace technologies.”
