UTG Private Aviation, part of the UTG Group and one of Russia’s largest business aviation service providers, is starting a major upgrade of its FBO at Moscow Domodedovo Airport. The project, which is expected to be completed by mid-2022, includes a complete renovation of its FBO terminal and the construction of aircraft hangars and a helipad.
FBO executive director Elena Zhdanova told AIN that the company is applying the U.S. model for its terminal makeover—“not pretentious, but convenient with adequate cost of provided services,” she said. “We are creating a fundamentally new system based on the existing terminal, which involves its complete renovation, as well as overhaul of the apron and building of a helipad.”
According to Zhdanova, the project also involves the construction of hangars for aircraft storage and maintenance and the development of related services such as on-site aircraft catering. She expects that when the project is completed in the first half of 2022, traffic at the Russian FBO will double to 200 aircraft movements per month.
