Koltsovo International Airport sees steady growth in first quarter
From January to March, in addition to a 1.4 percent increase in passenger traffic for domestic airlines, maximum passenger growth reached 16.1 percent in the international air travel sector.
The airport saw a 2.2 percent increase quarter-over-quarter in the total number of flights. The company carried 6,500 tons of cargo and mail, a 13.3 percent increase from the same period last year.
Alex Piskunov, the airport's CEO, said demand for international air travel rose in the first quarter, due in part to tourists and an increase in charter operations. The number of traveling Russians and their destinations also increased.
The airport had 84 scheduled destinations, including 37 domestic and 47 international, for the first quarter of the year. The leading cities for passenger growth during the period were Phuket, Dubai, Sharjah, Punta Cana, Harbin, Moscow, Irkutsk and Kemerovo.
Passenger traffic saw average growth of 50 percent in the cities associated with the development project of Koltsovo's regional air service, including Perm, Magnitogorsk, Kazan, Orenburg, Ufa and Samara.
