We are on three continents, in seven countries, and at 14 airports. The number of passengers we serve increased 8% and reached 102 million in 2015. Our primary target in the upcoming period will be to maximize our revenue and profitability at all the airports where we operate.
In the next 15 years, USD 1 trillion in total investment is anticipated in the world aviation sector. With our strong partners and integrated business model, we plan to focus on new and profitable business opportunities all over the world in the coming period.
Over the years, our service companies have significantly contributed to TAV's success and started to provide services at airports not operated by TAV. We believe that the world aviation sector will soon meet with our star companies rising from Turkey in areas such as duty free, food & beverage service, ground services and information technologies.
