MOSCOW, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Sochi International Airport is set to service up to 25,000 passengers per day during the winter Olympic Games, the press service of Basel Aero, a joint venture of Basic Element, Sberbank of Russia and Changi Airports International, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Sochi International Airport is a member of Basel Aero.
This makes almost four times more passengers than the last year’s daily passenger traffic.
“On busy days from February 4 to February 8 the airport will service up to 60 flights per day,” the press service said. “For four days — from February 4 to February 7 — the toughest days, when guests and athletes will arrive for the Olympic Games, the airport will receive over 200 domestic and international flights.”
“At the same time, the airport should ensure non-stop operating activity for 16 hours per day,” the press service said. “The hourly traffic that specialists of the airport should process during this time makes up to 3,800 passengers.”
More than a half of flights to Sochi will be performed by Russian companies from Moscow and one third — from regions. Foreign flights, including those from Stockholm, Paris, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Washington, Munich, Chicago, Oslo, Prague, Sofia, Vienna, Zurich, Zagreb, Tokyo, Kiev, London, Beijing, Milan, Nuremberg, Shanghai, etc. will make around 20 percent of the traffic.
“The airport formed its schedule in such a way as to make it possible for most air carriers to use boarding bridges for embarkation and disembarkation of passengers,” the press service said.
Sochi International Airport has significant throughput reserves with 10 boarding bridges and a new 6,000 square meter boarding area.
