In 2019, design and survey work will begin on the reconstruction of the Magan, Ust-Nera and Polarny airports, the press service of the Ministry of Transport of Yakutia reports.

Over a ten-year period, the 'Airports of the North' Federal State-Run Enterprise managed to start the reconstruction of airports relatively recently: in 2017, the first facility was commissioned - Chokurdakh Airport with the reconstructed runway, patrol road, fencing and lighting equipment. In the coming days, according to General Director of the aviation enterprise Vadim Volkov, the implementation of the federal target program at Tiksi and Sakkyryr airports will be completed.

In 2019, ‘Airports of the North’ will proceed to the reconstruction of the Seimchan airport in the Magadan region and the four airports of the republic in Verkhnevilyuisk, Zhigansk, Olyokminsk, and Neryungri.

Vadim Volkov, General Director of ‘Airports of the North’: “Most of the work will be in the airports, where the runway reconstruction is planned. The airport of Zhigansk will retain dirt runway surface, will have taxiways and apron. During the entire reconstruction, the airport will be able to receive and send passengers without any restrictions. At the Olyokminsk airport it is planned to completely replace the dirt runway surface with an artificial one, which will limit the aircraft traffic for the period of work on the airfield. However, in the future, this will solve the annual transport problem of the runway soaking.”

Also in 2019, the four-year reconstruction at the Neryungri airport in the amount of 7.3 billion rubles will start.

In 2019, design and survey work begins on the reconstruction of the Magan, Ust-Nera and Polarny airports. Today, 13 airports of the 'Airports of the North' federal aviation enterprise are included in the reconstruction as part of the Development of the transport system of Russia program; design estimates are available for all airports of the enterprise.

Reconstruction of airports is carried out in the framework of the program Development of the transport system of Russia, the press service of the Ministry of Transport of Yakutia reports.
