KRASNOYARSK, February 28. /TASS/. The Dikson airport, the most northern airport in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, requires an external investor for further development, acting head of the Taimyr municipal district, Vladimir Shishov told TASS on Tuesday.
"The current situation around the Dikson airport cannot guarantee regular transport communication with the settlement, while for Dikson the airport is actually the only transport option," he said, "thus the way out here could be attracting an external investor on conditions of a concession, like it was with the Khatanga airport."
Right now, the airport’s infrastructures do not meet requirements of the federal aviation regulations, and the airport’s work has been suspended. Thus, passenger flights between Norilsk and Dikson now are operated by the KrasAvia Company. Every week, the company has to apply for respective permissions.
The airport is the federal property. The suggestion is the airport would be managed by the state-run Airports of Krasnoyarsk Territory, and the federal budget allocates additional financing. Rosaviatsiya (aviation transport authority) has presented necessary papers to the Ministry of Transport, and the decision is expected by July 1, 2017.
In 2012, the Airports of Krasnoyarsk Territory began managing five regional airports. At the next stage, the company was supposed to take additionally control over airports in Tura, Baikit, Vanavara, Khatanga, Dikson and Yeniseisk, but this has not happened to date.
In July, 2016, Governor Viktor Tolokonsky told TASS the region could unite all the northern airports into one unitary company.
