Vladivostok International Airport may be closed for a year
Vladivostok International Airport can be closed for a year. This was announced by the provisional Governor of Primorye, Andrei Tarasenko, to the presidential aide Igor Levitin at a meeting in Vladivostok.
As the Interfax, the head of the region is concerned about the need to reconstruct the only functioning airport runway. Its overhaul is planned for 2020 year. Reconstruction can take from one year to 1,5 years. This will lead to the closure of the Knevichi airport for the entire period, because the second runway was decommissioned in 2012 due to inadequate compliance with aerodrome validity standards. In order for the airport to function, it is necessary to reconstruct the second strip from 2019 to 2022 year.
