International Airport Review - The world's TOP 20 airports

Журнал International Airport Review опубликовал рейтинг ТОП-20 аэропортов мира, в который вошел Международный аэропорт Сочи.

Best Feature: It’s resoundingly successful management of the 2014 Winter Olympics, the rst Olympic event to be held in Russia since 1980 is one of the standout
reasons for why we have chosen Sochi. In relatively unchartered territory, the Russian airport certainly came out of the event among the medals.

Over 8,500 passengers came through Sochi International on February 6, on the eve of the Olympics’ kickoff. On the day of the opening ceremony, February 7, the gateway served over 8,700 people what is six times as much as on average days. What is perhaps most impressive is that there
were no flight delays during this peak period.

Passenger Stats: 5,260,000

Year Opened: 1945

Fun Facts: It served over 350,000 passengers in February 2014. Over 2,800 tons of luggage was handled during this period.

The Important Details: The airport is run by an international joint venture of Basic Element group, Sberbank and Changi Airports International. Fuert to this, the airport has been recognised as the best regional airport at the 3rd annual forum “Development of Russia and CIS airports – 2013”, held by the Adam Smith Conference group.
