TOMSK, Sep 24 – RIA Tomsk. Tomsk Airport, which has been closed for almost two months due to runway repairs, will start operating normally on September 26; the contractor has repaired 1.4 thousand meters of the runway, Deputy Governor of the Tomsk region for Industrial Policy Igor Shaturny told reporters on Friday.

Earlier, it was reported that due to the runway reconstruction work at the Tomsk airport, interregional flights from and to Tomsk are operated only one day a week from August 3 to September 25 – from 06.00 on Sunday to 09.00 on Monday.

"We intentionally held another staff meeting today where the contractor reported on the results of the work we had planned for eight weeks. We had planned to repair 1,100 metres of runway, we have repaired 1,400 metres. Now we are finishing work. On Sunday (September 26), the airport will be operating normally", – Shaturny said.

According to him, the reconstruction of the runway of the Tomsk airport will continue in 2022, but work on sewage treatment facilities and the new 300 meters of the runway will go as long as the weather allows.

It was also reported earlier that the current runway of the Tomsk airport is 2.5 kilometres and will increase to 2.8 kilometres after the reconstruction. It will allow to get the class B instead of the current B and to receive a larger number of aircraft models, including long-haul aircraft, for example, Boeing 777. The general contractor of the work is TDSC, who has also been charged with equipping the runway with a drainage and sewage system and treatment facilities, a new checkpoint and an emergency rescue station. The work is due to be completed in 2022.
