SOCHI, November 25 /TASS/. The Sukhum international airport in Abkhazia will be operated by a Russian company, Abkhazian Prime Minister Beslan Butba told journalists on Tuesday.
“The runway and air traffic control will continue to be run by the state; other services and facilities will be handed over to a Russian company. We are now looking for an organization that could take up this job,” Butba said.
The Abkhazian side has already received proposals from several Russian companies.
The Abkhazian government is planning to turn Abkhazia into a transit country that will develop railway connections to Armenia and Russia, the prime minister said.
