Reconstruction of terminals of JSC "Khabarovsk airport", about which Already repeatedly wrote EastRussia, has been discussed since the mid-2000s: first, the South Korean Incheon International Airport Corp. was supposed to act as an "anchor" co-investor of the project, even part of the charter capital of the airport, then negotiations were held with a consortium of Japanese companies led by Sojitz Corporation. For the last decade, the airport itself has been confidently in the top twenty in Russia in terms of passenger traffic and in the top ten in terms of cargo traffic. At the end of 2017, the passenger traffic of the Khabarovsk airport amounted to 2,051 million people, taking into account transit (an increase of 10% to the level of 2016), cargo traffic - 25,8 thousand tons (plus 5%). But until recently, it was not possible to find a co-investor to modernize the outdated terminal infrastructure of the Soviet period.

However, in the winter negotiations entered the final stage, and on the site of future construction they cleared the site, demolishing one of the old airport buildings. Today, at the site of the future construction of the guests of the ceremony of laying a commemorative capsule with the "symbolic passport of the project", a temporary pavilion built of wooden beams was waiting. The event was to be visited by Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev, who will visit various social facilities in Khabarovsk today, and Governor Vyacheslav Shport. In anticipation of the start of the ceremony, the head of the board of directors of JSC Khabarovsk airport Konstantin Basyuk willingly explained to the press that the laying of the capsule "is the beginning of the first large-scale stage of airport reconstruction." 

"By the end of 2019, by November, we plan to move the maintenance of passengers and airplanes to a new terminal" , - he specified. The Turkish Limak-Marashstroy holding, which built in Russia, for example, the Yuzhny Airport (Rostov-on-Don), won the construction contract four days ago. 

The contract with the winner of the tender was signed on March 14, and the builders "actually entered the site: in March mobilization work, the delivery of equipment and workers, the installation of the construction camp will take place, and the preparation of the foundation will begin in April," stressed Konstantin Basyuk. "Just yesterday we signed a contract, but we are already here. At the" peak "of work, in about eight months, 600-700 employees will be involved. The construction period under the contract is 18 months," Selcuk Karadzha, the founder of Limak Marash Stroy, confirmed. 

The first stage of the airport reconstruction, Konstantin Basyuk noted, was financed by shareholders' own funds and a loan from leading development institutions - VEB and the Far East Development Fund. “Financially, the project is fully structured and closed,” he assured. A loan of up to 3,9 billion rubles. for the project, we recall, VEB and FEDV agreed to provide the investor at the recent investment forum in Sochi (VEB's share is 1,9 billion rubles), the total cost of reconstruction is 4,9 billion rubles. 

The old domestic terminal, located near the site for the construction of the new terminal, according to Konstantin Basyuk, "will most likely be reconstructed and will continue to be used for servicing passengers," although the investor is considering several options for his future fate. 

The top manager of the airport recalled that in parallel, the company has been starting the reconstruction of the international terminal since summer, for which "a permit from Glavgosekpertiza was received just a few days ago." According to Konstantin Basyuk, the company expects to "put in order the airport" for passengers of international flights "by the end of this year, maximum by the beginning of the next one." "In the future, as international passenger traffic grows, we plan to build a new terminal for international flights. I think that by the time the construction of the terminal for domestic airlines is completed, we will start this," he said. In addition, according to Konstantin Basyuk, the airport received a positive conclusion for the construction of a new hotel - this is part of the AirCity project. "Negotiations are underway with financial institutions to attract investments. Very soon the airport will be transformed, you will see it with your own eyes," Konstantin Basyuk promised.

Meanwhile, the roof of the temporary pavilion, in which the ceremony was supposed to be held, suddenly began to leak because of the snowfall and hot sun. Urgently called cleaners with buckets and rags did not save the situation, and the capsule was decided to be moved to the street. 

Yuri Trutnev and Vyacheslav Shport, entering the building, went to the model of the transformed airport - this layout, which for several years has been driven by various events and economic forums, has two new terminals and the AirCity complex. "Will you manage the terms?" - Asked Constantine Basyuk Yuri Trutnev. He nodded. "Well, let's just do it, without delay," warned Trutnev. 

The governor and the top manager immediately asked the vice-premier for support in financing the construction of a new runway - the work is already under way and is financed from the federal budget, but is divided into two stages, Vyacheslav Shport recalled. In the region they want the work to go on without a gap between the first and second stages. "You will prepare a letter," Yury Trutnev said. "Let's prepare," promised the governor.   

Then Yuriy Trutnev congratulated everyone on the fact that "the project is still beginning," and promised the support of the federal government in both financing for the reconstruction of the runways and apron, as well as for presenting benefits to the investor in the framework of the territory of advanced development. "I wish you success, and we will monitor that everything is on time, and people get good service." And according to the results of construction, the passenger traffic should double, "the vice-premier said. Khabarovsk Governor Vyacheslav Shport thanked Yuri Trutnev for the fact that "when the money was attempted to take away the object, it promptly intervened and everyone returned," and asked for further support. "Terms are short, tough, but we will cope with them," promised Constantine Basyuk. 

Then all three were thrown over the cement trowel into the brick, where they had already packed the tube with the "symbolic passport of the project". This stone builders will have to lay in the foundation of the new terminal. "We will be able to extract all this later in order to show our commitments," he joked, or threatened Yury Trutnev at last. on this note the ceremony was over.
