The construction of the runway in Okha is ahead of schedule. 550 reinforced concrete slabs have already arrived for arranging a new strip. In total, eight thousand are required. They will be laid down next year.

While the builders uprooted the bushes and leveled the site, equipped the taxiway, partially drawn communication lines and fenced the airfield with more than half. According to the plan, these works were to be completed in December of this year. There is still a need to equip treatment facilities and a patrol road.

According to the press service of the Sakhalin government, the second stage involves the reconstruction of the apron, a platform for anti-icing processing of aircraft, the construction of a modular gas boiler room and emergency rescue station. Construction will be completed in 2021 year.
