Kalyon Group is a Turkish conglomerate, with major interests in construction. In 2013 it was part of a joint venture which won the EUR22bn contract to construct a third international airport in Istanbul.[1] Other contracts include Istanbul's Metrobus system, the construction of a new stadium for İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediyesi S.K.,[2] and the redevelopment of Taksim Gezi Park to reconstruct the Taksim Military Barracks.[3]

The company was founded in 1974 by Hasan Kalyoncu and is now run by his sons. Kalyoncu was a close friend of the former Prime Minister Turgut Özal.[1][2] Kalyon was described in 2013 by the BBC as "a company which has close ties with the governing Justice and Development (AK) Party".[3]
