Aurora’s efforts resulted in increased passenger flow for the flights to Primorskiy Region
For Primorsk citizens the cost of flight is cheaper due to Primorsk budgeting program related to airline operations. The maximal ticket for a regional flight cost not more than 2,000 rubles and is equal to the bus travel cost of the same route.
While developing of the regional flights, Primorskiy Region Administration continue to improve the aerodrome infrastructure. In the local airport the following facilities have been improved by personnel of Plastun-Avia Company: runways, parking stands, passenger terminal. They reconstructed the aerodrome facilities in Dalnegorsk and Amgu villiages prior to resuming of flights. Now they are working on projects to reconstruct the landing spaces in Vostok, Lazo, Olon, Okhotnichiy villiages for DHC-6 aircraft landing; they are considering the future reconstruction of flight operation infrastructure in Arseniev and Nakhodka.
Now Primorskiy Region Administration, Plastun-Avia Company and Aurora are working to increase flight capacity and development of new destinations in consideration of purchase of new DHC-6 aircraft. Among the new routes, they consider Vladivostok – Preobrazhenie where a new landing space and passenger terminal are being built.
