The Zhukovsky International Airport is ready to provide its infrastructure for the Vietnamese air carriers. Expansion of air connections between Russia and Vietnam will promote the development of the trade and economic relations between the two states.
The Zhukovsky airport is ready to provide its capacities to Vietnam’s air carriers. The airport can accept all types of aircraft without any takeoff weight restrictions. The main 5.4 km airstrip of the airfield is the longest one not only in Russia, but also in Europe and is the third longest in the world. This enables the airport to accept all types of aircraft without any takeoff weight restrictions.
In 2017, Vietnam recorded a notable growth in the tourist flow from Russia: 570 thousand Russian citizens enjoyed their vacations in Vietnamese resorts last year – this is 32% more as compared to 2016. From January through March 2018, the Russian tourist flow to Vietnam increased by 15.8% versus the same period last year.
“Vietnam is a key air destination for Russian citizens. The passenger flow to Vietnam has been demonstrating a considerable annual growth,” said Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov. “Rostec will welcome the Vietnamese airlines as future operators of the airport. We can guarantee world-class services for air carriers and passengers. I firmly believe that expansion of air connections between Russia and Vietnam will promote the development of the trade and economic relations between the two states.”
In the first 9 months of 2018, the number of passengers served by the Zhukovsky International Airport was two times higher than during the whole 2017. Zhukovsky continues active work aimed at expanding the flight geography and engaging new airlines.
