Reconstruction of terminals of JSC "Khabarovsk airport", about which Already repeatedly wrote EastRussia, was discussed from the middle of the 2000-s: first, the South Korean Incheon International Airport Corp. was supposed to be the anchor co-investor of the project, even included in the charter capital of the airport, then the negotiations were conducted with a consortium of Japanese companies led by the Sojitz Corporation. The airport itself for the past decade is confidently holding in the top twenty for Russia in terms of passenger traffic and in the top ten - in terms of cargo traffic. As a result of 2017, the passenger traffic of Khabarovsk airport amounted to 2,051 million people, including transit (10% increase to the level of 2016-th), cargo traffic - 25,8 thousand tons (plus 5%). But co-investor to upgrade the outdated terminal infrastructure still Soviet period until recently, it was not possible to find.

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 14 March, and the builders "actually went to the site: mobilization work will be carried out in March, equipment and workers will be transported, the construction of a construction camp will be started," said Konstantin Basyuk. "Yesterday we signed a contract, but we are already here.On the" peak "of the work, in about eight months, 600-700 employees will be involved in the construction of the contract - 18 months", confirmed the founder of Limak Marash Stroy Selchuk Karadzha.

The first stage of airport reconstruction, Konstantin Basyuk noted, is provided with financing from shareholders' own funds and loans from leading development institutions - VEB and the Far East Development Fund. "The project is completely structured and closed for finance," he assured. The loan in the amount of up to 3,9 billion rubles. for the project, recall, VEB and FRD agreed to provide the investor at the recent investor forum in Sochi (VEB share - 1,9 billion rubles), the total cost of reconstruction - 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 reminded that in parallel the company starts the reconstruction of the international terminal from the summer, on which "permission of Glavgosepertiza" was received a few days ago. "Arrange the airport" for passengers of international flights, according to Konstantin Basyuk, the company expects "by the end of this year, the maximum to the beginning of the next." "In the future, as international passenger traffic grows, we are planning to build a new terminal for the International Air Terminal as well." I think that by the time the terminal for domestic airlines is completed, we will start it, "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 project to create AirCity. "Negotiations with financial institutions are underway to attract investments, very soon the airport will be transformed, you will see it with your own eyes," promised Constantine Basyuk.

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.
