Construction of a new airport in the Russian Far-Eastern city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky will start in the spring and summer of 2019, Governor of the region Vladimir Ilyukhin told RIA Novosti news agency.
“Everything is going according to a plan, work on a new project is underway, and by the spring of next year, it should be completed, including expert examination and search for an investor. I think that next year — in the spring and summer — construction of a new terminal will begin”, Ilyukhin said on the sidelines of the Fourth Eastern Economic Forum.
According to him, in order to create more comfortable conditions for passengers, it was decided to build an extension of the terminal. By March, the facility is scheduled to be put in operation, and during the construction of the new complex, it will be operational.
As a reference, the Fourth Eastern Economic Forum is taking place on the campus site of the Far Eastern Federal University on September 11-13.
