MOSCOW, July 3 (Itar-Tass) - In order to meet the forecasted demands, Moscow’s Domodedovo airport needs a third runway, while Moscow itself needs one more airport, otherwise the Moscow Air Hub will in 2021 reach the peak of its capacity of about 100 million passengers, says a report by Vegas Lex, an independent consultant for the development of the Moscow Air Hub, received by Itar-Tass.
The growth of passenger flow to 144 million people a year by 2025 will become possible if Domodedovo gets an additional runway and a passenger terminal of 450,000 square meters is built.
Only a new airport will be able to satisfy the market demand of 179 million passengers a year by 2030. This envisages the construction of an airport with two independent runways and a terminal of 350,000 square meters, the consultant says.
If a Domodedovo gets a third runway and a fourth airport is built, the Moscow Air Hub will be able to service from 2021 to 2030 additional 286 million passengers. Otherwise, restrictions caused by insufficient capacity of runways will result starting from 2022 in an aggregate loss for Russian GDP by 2030 of net value added worth 1.46 trillion roubles.
The report of the independent consultant - Vegas Lex, was prepared by the government order and was taken into consideration in offers for the development of the Moscow Air Hub that the government presents to President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday. The report is an alternative point of view.
