Regular flights to Kyrgyzstan will begin from Moscow's Zhukovsky airport on June 20, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
"Regular flights from the new airport, Zhukovsky, performed by Air Kyrgyzstan will begin shortly, on June 20," Medvedev said at Russian-Kyrgyz negotiations in the expanded format.
This is proof of strengthening contacts between Russia and Kyrgyzstan in an important area - air traffic, he said. "This is our new Moscow airport, and it is symbolic that your airline was one of the first two to sign flight documents," the Russian prime minister said.
Zhukovsky, the fourth international airport of Moscow, opened on May 30. Tomas Vaisvilla, General Director of the Ramport Aero airport management company (25 percent of which is owned by Rostec via TVK Russia JSC and 75 percent by Lithuania's Avia Solutions Group), signed agreements on flight services with the first four Zhukovsky residents - Air Kyrgyzstan, Scat (Kazakhstan) and two Russian cargo companies - Aviastar-TU and Sky Gates Airlines (which has yet to be certified; it will file an application with Rosaviatsiya in early June).
Passenger airlines will open regular flights in late June. They will be flying to Astana, Bishkek, Osh, Chimkent, Aktobe and Aktau. Air Kyrgyzstan plans eight flights per week, and Scat expects to perform 12.
