The signature ceremony of the localized manufacturing project of the Istanbul Airport Line was held on Wednesday in Ankara, the capital of Turkiye. This project is a collaboration between Turkish and Chinese companies. It will produce Turkiye's first and fastest unmanned high-speed subway train.  

The subway train was developed by CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co., Ltd., a Chinese company specializing in electric locomotives. It has a design speed of 120 km/h and a maximum passenger capacity of 1,100 people.  

With the localized manufacturing project, more than a dozen Turkish companies will join forces with CRRC to produce more subway trains locally. The project aims to achieve a localization rate of 60 percent, which means more development for TTurkiye's rail transit industry chain.  

The Istanbul Airport Line is already operating as Turkiye's first high-speed subway line, connecting the city center with the new airport. It can carry 800,000 passengers per day.
