Iturup Island residents will choose the name of the new airport

The new airport on the Kuril island of Iturup, which began receiving planes a month and a half ago, may receive the official name "Clear". It is it that is loved by the residents of the region most of all and is the leader among other proposals, the press service of the regional government reports.

Such information was announced at a regular meeting of the commission to summarize the collection of proposals from the islanders. The meeting was chaired by Victoria Cherkasova, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Governor and the Government of the Sakhalin Region. The collection of proposals from the population of the region on the name of the new all-weather airport on Iturup, which replaced the old and unreliable "Burevestnik", began at the end of September.

During this time, about 300 people have already sent 45 proposals, with the most active residents of the Kuriles and the northern regions of Sakhalin. Among the options are such names as: "Pioneer", "Kasatka", "Rusich", "Svyatogor", "Solnechny", "Blagodatny", etc.

However, the leader is Yasny. This proposal was made by 254 people. This includes the staff of the Aurora airline and the initiative group of Kurilsk residents. At the last meeting of the commission, this proposal was supported not only by the deputies of the regional Duma and members of the Government, but also by professional pilots, as well as representatives of public organizations.
