Brest airport renovating runway to accept larger flights

The Brest airport has begun the renovation of the runway. At the same time, the airport is working as usual.

It is planned that works on the strip will be completed in the autumn of 2017. The builders have already removed 180 meters of old coating, which is almost 30 years old. In total, it is necessary to update more than 2.5 kilometers of coating. At the same time, the shape and size of Brest's runway will remain the same.

Alexander Zavertaylo, engineer:
At its ends the runway has turning zones, on which the aircraft turn after landing and taxi out towards the building. After the reconstruction, these turn areas will be expanded, which will allow larger aircraft to land, turn and taxi without special equipment.

The new infrastructure will allow the Brest airport to accept various types of aircraft, which means bringing the airport to the international level.
