Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko proposed to restore the sites for runways (runways) for small aircraft in Kamchatka. Mr. Chernyshenko, as part of a working trip to the Far East, examined the existing Yelizovo airport complex and assessed the project of a new passenger terminal. The Deputy Prime Minister also visited the airfield in the village of Ozernovsky and discussed its modernization.

Dmitry Chernyshenko noted that the reconstruction of small airports and runways will improve the transport accessibility of the regions of Kamchatka, primarily for local residents. “There are about 30 developed runway sites. Most of them are from the Soviet era. They can be restored in a fairly short time, ”said Mr. Chernyshenko. According to him, private business has already become interested and is purchasing aircraft.

This week, Russian President Vladimir Putin called for mass tourism to the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka. He objected to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, who said: “You can’t let (into the Valley of Geysers. – “B”) ten times more people: they will simply trample everything there. ” After that, the Deputy Prime Minister went to the Far East on behalf of Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin “to deal with the development of the tourism potential of the Valley of Geysers and the Kamchatka Territory.”
