Utair Aviation's airport hub is getting a new terminal
Roschino International Airport (TJM), the hub of Russian airlines, Utair Aviation, is having a new terminal building built by Novaport Holding, a transport company that deals with regional airports within Russia. The new terminal will be 17,000 sq m and will allow for a significant increase in passenger growth. Roschino International Airport had yearly passenger traffic of 1.8 million people in 2017, and with the new terminal, that number is expected to rise by nearly 20%, meaning the airport would handle 5 million passengers per year.
The airport recently underwent a five-year reconstruction project that saw passenger traffic grow from 250 people per hour to 600 people per hour. However, Novaport Holding felt that there's a demand to further expand the airport and bring even more traffic in with the arrival of a new terminal.
