‘There was a solemn meetings/greetings ceremony, with a brass band performance and a shower of air balloons coming down from the ceiling. The airport’s CFO Yuri Kurdyukov and Head of Ural Airlines’s Irkutsk branch Vyacheslav Zemerov congratulated Ms Lipukhina on the happy occasion,’ the press service says.

‘We are delighted to see a Ural Airlines passenger making it as Irkutsk Airport’s 2,000,000th passenger this year.
