The project for the reconstruction of the Chara airport in Transbaikalia received a positive conclusion from the state expert review. The work will take place in two stages and will begin this year.

According to the project, the airport will first update the runway, taxiways and apron, equip it with light-signaling equipment with low-intensity lights to ensure round-the-clock operation. Then, the construction of an office-passenger building with a capacity of 50 passengers per hour will begin. There will also be opened a health center and a medical office, a room for a mother and a child, and catering outlets.

According to the press service of the regional government, the building of an emergency and rescue station with a training ground, a garage for special equipment, a warehouse for fuels and lubricants, and a checkpoint will appear in Chara. It is also planned to equip the pedestrian zone on the forecourt. The existing infrastructure for the transportation of passengers and goods, aircraft maintenance does not meet modern standards and the requirements of current regulatory and technical documentation.

Last year, the authorities of Transbaikalia asked the Ministry of Transport of Russia, the Federal Air Transport Agency and the Ministry of Eastern Development reschedule financing reconstruction from 2022 to 2020. About two billion rubles are needed for work.
