Sberbank Financed the Construction and Commissioning of a New Terminal for Domestic Flights at Gumrak Airport in Volgograd

Sberbank CIB, the corporate and investment banking business of Sberbank, has financed the construction and commissioning of a new terminal for domestic flights at Gumrak Airport in Volgograd. Sberbank has provided financing for the construction of the terminal since 2017. The terminal was officially opened today.

      The new terminal has an area of 9,200 square metres and has a handling capacity of 720 passengers per hour. It will service up to 1.5 million passengers per year. Volgograd’s Gumrak Airport is Russia’s 26th largest airport in terms of passenger flow (1 mln people in 2017). The launch of this terminal is very important to Volgograd – one of the host cities of the 2018 World Cup – in terms of infrastructure and logistics.

The city of Volgograd was founded in 1589 and served as a fortress guarding the trade route along the Volga river. The city on the Volga River has changed its name several times through history. In 1925 the city’s name Tsaritsyn (formed from the Russian word – Tsar) was replaced by a more updated and Soviet one – Stalingrad (formed from the name of Stalin). When the cult of Stalin’s personality also passed into oblivation, the city was renamed into Volgograd that means "a town on the River Volga". However, the city became a hero-city when it was bearing the name of Stalingrad. During World War II the city turned into the stage of hot battles that were amongst the crucial battles for the victory of allied over the Nazi. By 1945 Stalingrad had been practically leveled and was among the first Russian towns reconstructed in the first post-war years. Nowadays nothing reminds that this beautiful modern city once was a site of post-war ruins and only several museums and monuments remind of those painful events of the past and commemorate the memory of those who sacrificed their lives for the peace and contributed in the victory over the Nazi.


      Now Volgograd is one of the largest Russian cities with a population of over 1 million people.
