MOSCOW, August 18. /TASS/. A new international airport has opened in central Russia. It is located in the administrative center of a large industrial region of the country - in Kaluga which borders the Moscow Region in the south-west. According to a governmental decree, a multiway border checkpoint for passengers will be established at the airport.
The decision to open an international airport in Kaluga was made to lower the deficit of regional airports and increase investment attractiveness of the Kaluga Region, where automobile, pharmaceutical, transport, logistical, agricultural and IT clusters are actively developing. Large industrial parks like Rosva, Kaluga-Yug, Grabtsevo and Vorsino are located in the region. Developing tourism in the region is also one of the key objectives of opening a new airport.
Modernization of runway, taxiways, aircraft parking and terminal building was held at Kaluga’s Grabtsevo airport. Necessary conditions for international air travel were created in the airport.
