Airport in Astana to become major multimodal hub

The airport in the city of Astana will become a major multimodal hub due to the development cooperation with a company from the United Arab Emirates. The corresponding agreement has already been signed. The priority tasks of the company will include the preparation of the runway for reconstruction and its further modernization. Repair works of ground infrastructure are planned to start next year. In the future, the company will be entrusted with operational management to improve the quality of service for the growing passenger traffic and overall efficiency of the airport. A long-term business plan will also be created for the development of the country’s main air gate. According to the Kazakh Ministry of Transport, the balance of interests of the state and the private company will be taken into account, which will provide a basis for future investments.
