Another step towards a brighter future
Within the framework of the program “Magnitogorsk - the second capital of the Southern Urals”, an airdrome will be reconstructed at the airport of the city. The head of the region, Alexei Teksler, spoke about the plans for the implementation of the project.
Magnitogorsk International Airport is included in the federal state program “Transport System Development”. In the next two years, design work will be completed. The state customer for reconstruction is the Federal Air Transport Agency. The customer-developer will be the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Administration of Civil Airports”. At the expense of the federal budget for the period from 2021 to 2024, it is planned to reconstruct the runway, taxiways, drainage system, lighting, power supply system.
If today Magnitogorsk Airport provides demand for passenger air transportation in four directions - Moscow, Sochi, Simferopol and Antalya, then the project will allow to expand the existing route network.
“ We are aimed at increasing passenger traffic,” explained Alexei Leonidovich. - If we establish logistics capabilities within the framework of the Magnitogorsk interregional agglomeration, residents of the region will more often use the airport. We are ready to subsidize this direction and facilitate the opening of additional routes in case they are in demand. ”
