The airport of the Chechen capital Grozny will reopen to regular passenger flights in seven days’ time
The airport of the Chechen capital Grozny will reopen to regular passenger flights in seven days’ time, Chechen Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov said on Thursday. “In six months from now the airport will be able to service international flights,” said, coupling this optimistic statement with the promise Chechnya’s Vainakhavia airlines will have its own fleet of aircraft. “Chechen businessmen have declared the intention to invest into this project,” Kadyrov said. Vainakhavia airlines General Director Gairuddi Visingiriyev has said at the initial phase Grozny’s airport will be servicing Dagestani and North Ossetian air carriers. The airport is capable of accommodating Tu-154 passenger jets and planes of the similar class. The group of 15 air technicians underwent instruction in Rostov-on-Don. Thirteen of them are ethnic Chechens, and two, Russians. The first passenger jet, a Tu-134 of the Transaviaservis airlines, made a landing at Grozny’s airport that lay in reins for years on Thursday. Ramzan Kadyrov’s sister, Zulai, arrived in Grozny from Moscow on board the plane. “It’s so good to be able to travel home by air again. The landing was very soft. I am not an expert, but I did not notice the moment the plane touched the ground. And I was not scared at all,” Zulai Kadyrova said.
