Renova continues its advance through Russia’s vast expanses by investing in airports.

Regional Airports Management Company, the airport division of Viktor Vekselberg’s Renova has just won the bid to upgrade the Perm airport.

Investment into a major renovation of Bolshoye Savino Airport is expected to total 8 billion roubles.

Originally opened in 1965, it launched international flights in 1993. It has been officially used by the Perm Airlines and the Ministry of Defence.

According to the bid, Renova will build a new passenger terminal, with a floor space of 25,000 sq m, a hotel with up to 150 rooms, upgrade the cargo terminal and later build a new one.

The works will be done in two stages, with the first deadline at expiring on December 31, 2015.

The construction of a passenger and cargo hub in the Perm Region will surely improve its tourist appeal.

Other bidders included Roman Trotsenko’s Novaport and Oleg Deripaska’s Bazel Aero. It is these two big holdings, along with Renova and Sidinka Holdings, controlled by Arsen Kanokov, president of the Kabardino-Balkaria Republic, that have channeled hefty funds into the redevelopment of regional airports.
