Sheremetyevo, Russia's principal international airport, will have a third terminal
Construction is soon to start, determined yesterday's Board of Directors session of the Aeroflot/Russian Airlines, the country's leading air company. Valeri Okulov, Aeroflot president, refused to go into whatever details as he was offering the information to newsmen today. The company will soon come up with an explicit statement, he added. Igor Levitin, federal Transport Minister, joined in to specify the point. Decision-making on third terminal prospects belongs to the state alone, and it is up to the federal government to settle the matter. The Directors' Board decision of September 21 concerned only the sheer possibility to start construction. More than that, there is another option-to reconstruct the second terminal, or Sheremetyevo 2. The airport Board of Directors will debate the matter, October, said the minister. The Alfa Group won a contest, January last, to become airport corporate manager. On government order, the Aeroflot and the Alfa Group signed blueprints for joint airport management, toward June's end. They started negotiations to share out Alfa stock between the Parties, and determined to establish a joint venture, Airport Management, as sole proprietor of the Alfa/Sheremetyevo. No managerial company has been officially established for today. At present, the port has two terminals-Sheremetyevo 1, for home and transnational flights alike, and Sheremetyevo 2, an international airport. Sheremetyevo 1 caters for 800 passengers an hour with transnational flights, and 600 with flights inside Russia; Sheremetyevo 2, 2,100 an hour. The government is holding a 51 per cent block of Aeroflot shares, and entire Sheremetyevo stock
