KRASNOYARSK, December 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Krasnoyarsk’s Cheremshanka airport, which terminal burned down on December 19, resumed cargo and helicopter flights, the airport’s Director General Andrei Nikiforov told the regional government on Thursday.
The airport’s staff continues working, and the company paid the December wages to everyone.
“We have agreed with the Yemelyanovo airport /in Krasnoyarsk, too/ on rent of space where our staff will register passengers for flights, which we operate from there now,” he said.
The Cheremshanka airport plans to re-equip a building at the airport to be used as a terminal as all flights are operated again from Cheremshanka.
“We plan to complete the work in about two months,” Nikiforov said.
Earlier, the fire destroyed fully the two-storey building of the airport. The disaster did not claim victims. On the day of the accident, the governor could not visit the area as he was in Khakassiya and Tuva together with Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin during his trip to Siberia. According to eyewitnesses, the fire broke out and spread very rapidly – in no more than five minutes. First, smoke began and then the fire started. The wind and open terrain on which the airport is located promoted the blaze spread. The flames engulfed an area of 2.5 thousand square meters. The building has collapsed and totally burnt. According to the emergencies department, it is beyond repair.
The Cheremshanka airport services local air routes flights. It is also the base airport of the Siberian Regional Emergencies Department Centre.
