Moscow Aerotropolis dawns

MOVE over St Louis, there’s a new Aerotropolis in town – Moscow Domodedovo Airport (Russia) is looking to embark on a 10-year development plan.

The plan includes a US$300 million cargo village, which will include a freight terminal, office space and hangars, and a $23 million service hangar for 747s.

A drawing board concept from the 1990s included a third runway, a revamped landing apron and expanded terminal facilities. A new version could make the airport the centre of a new commercial area extending as much as 20 kilometres away, Dmitry Kamenshchik, chairman of the Domodedovo Group board of directors, said.
