Zhukovsky International Airport opens in Moscow

Zhukovsky International Airport, built on the site of the aircraft testing facilities and the MAKS air show, has opened to commercial traffic.


Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev opened the passenger terminal at Zhukovsky International Airport (also know as Ramenskoye airfield) on May 30. The project to create a fourth commercial airport serving the Moscow region has resulted in the construction of a 190,000sq ft (17,000m2) building featuring 18 check-in desks, capable of handling up to two million passengers per year. The new facility has been built and will be managed by Ramport Aer, a joint venture between investor Rostec and Avia Solutions Group from Lithuania. To date, Air Kyrgyzstan and SCAT Airlines from Kazakhstan have agreed to use the airport.

Further development is expected to take place in the coming years, with a terminal extension due for completion by 2017 and a cargo building planned for a later phase. By the end of 2020, it is anticipated that the airport will have capacity to handle 20 million passengers a year. The existing 3.4 miles (5.5km) runway at Ramenskoye is one of the longest in Europe, and has been used to test a wide variety of Russian-designed aircraft.
