Progress in building aircraft repair factory, second runway in Minsk airport examinedMINSK, 12 January (BelTA) – Prime Minister of Belarus Andrei Kobyakov was made familiar with progress in building a new aircraft repair factory and the second runway in the Minsk National Airport on 12 January, BelTA has learned.

The aircraft repair factory will allow keeping aircraft repair business in Belarus in addition to exploring new business opportunities with good prospects of winning the market for the next few decades. Apart from that, the aircraft repair factory will expand the choice of services available to foreign air carriers in the Minsk National Airport.

At present casual observers may see one strategic installation at the construction site — a hangar where 80% of the current factory’s production assets will be located. Once the hangar is operational, the entire manufacturing process can be relocated to the new premises. The contract with the general contractor OAO Grodnopromstroy provides for commissioning the hangar in May 2017.

The new runway will be able to handle virtually all kinds of civilian aircraft in any weather. The existing runway has some restrictions for A380 aircraft: the exit taxi strip does not have enough radius for such aircraft. The new runway will have taxi strips for speedy exits, thus allowing any aircraft to land in the Minsk National Airport. New cutting-edge equipment will be installed including lighting equipment, radio technology, and navigation.
