Ostafyevo airport located within the territory of “new Moscow” will be reconstructed in order to develop business aviation, Interfax reports. It was reported by the head of Moscow department for development of new territories, Vladimir Zhidkon.
"We are discussing the development of Ostafyevo airport with Gazprom. They intend to reconstruct the airport", - he said. This airport is capable of servicing small aircraft and it will provide the citizens with additional transport capabilities. It will also help avoid restrictions in the area of construction as is the case with objects located near large aviation enterprises, Vladimir Zhidkin noted.
The development concept of business aviation is the most favorable for the “new” territory, he believes. The head of the department also noted that the airport’s runway will be stretched and the proper infrastructure will be constructed during reconstruction.
