Forbes sent a request to the company with a request to comment on its participation in the project. The company "Novaport" promptly failed to respond to the request.
“We previously voiced our interest in participating in the project to build a new Omsk airport,” said Evgeny Krasikov, Director for Strategic Communications at Airports of the Regions. - At the same time, we took into account the level of economic development of the region, the potential of the airport and our experience in implementing airport greenfield projects (Rostov-on-Don and Saratov). In this sense, our position has not changed - we are interested in participating in this project. But to talk about the specific investment parameters of this project is now premature: the issue of financing the airfield infrastructure must be resolved, the conditions for participation in the project are formulated, and appropriate competitive procedures are held. ”
