Koltosov Airport opens new transfer facility

Passengers landing in Yekaterinburg can now use the new transfer facilities at the Koltsovo International Airport.

The transfer facilities, in the international and domestic terminals, are available to passengers who  have a layover in Yekaterinburg.

Passengers use bridges to access their next flight’s registration area inside the sterile zone. Passengers can print new boarding passes and clear security checks in the transfer facility. 

Luggage that was registered through to its final destination will be transferred from one plane to another without the passengers having to recheck their baggage.

If travelers miss their connecting flights, they also can speak with the airline and rebook their flights in the transfer facility.

Travelers can spend the rest of their layover in the departure lounge.

The transfer service simplifies travel for all of the airport’s passengers; previously, passengers with layovers at the airport had to take their luggage from their flights and completely reregister for their next flights.

Airport officials anticipate a greatly improved quality of customer service due to the transfer service.
