Koltsovo Airport’s performance slows down

26 December 2008 (10:54)

Koltsovo Airport of Yekaterinburg’s passenger turnover is expected to come to more than 2.55 million RUR in 2008, which would exceed the figures for 2007 by 8.8%, the airport’s press officer reports. The airport’s cargo turnover also rose by 3.3% against a year earlier.

At the same time, these figures actually indicate a decrease in the airport’s performance, since Koltsovo Airport’s passenger turnover came to 2.34 million people in 2007, which was 32.9% better than in 2006. The airport’s management explains this dampened turnover growth has to do with the economic troubles in Russia and the rest of the world as well as with a dramatic jet fuel price increase early in the summer.
