The new air terminal in the Angara region will be built without investors
The authorities of the Irkutsk region are going to build a new air terminal at the airport of Irkutsk at their own expense. This was stated by the governor of the region Sergey Levchenko. The previous project for seven billion rubles was never implemented due to the intervention of the Federal Antimonopoly Service, which saw violation of antitrust laws when choosing an investor.
According to TASS, the authorities want to reduce the cost of the project by half compared to the previous one. At the same time, they are going to save on everything except the technical equipment of the terminal, which must meet modern requirements. It was planned that the terminal will accept both domestic and international flights and will allow passing up to three million passengers a year.
In February 2019, the construction of the terminal suspended due to FAS verification. The antimonopoly service was not satisfied with attracting private investors OJSC Ramport and Novaport without a tender. Administrative proceedings were instituted, and collaboration with companies was suspended. The authorities of the region sued to the supervisor, indicating the illegality of the checks and the decision.
