VLADIVOSTOK, October 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Primorye works on a program to restore local airports, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said on Wednesday during a working trip to the region.
“We are now allocating additional means for the development of municipal aviation,” the top official said. “Investments will make it possible to buy aircraft, put in order airfields,” he said.
In particular, Shuvalov mentioned the airport near the settlement of Galenki. It belongs to the Defence Ministry, and has not been used for the past several years.
“We must discuss with the Defence Ministry whether it will be possible to use that airport for civil purposes, for example for regional flights,” Shuvalov noted. “If, for example, it will link the region with Vladivostok, I believe this opportunity must be used. The social situation will be more stable if one plane a day touches down and takes off there,” the official stressed.
According to the first deputy prime minister, the restoration of Primorye airports will improve the situation of residents of remote municipalities, where transport infrastructure is underdeveloped.
