Major reasons to serve this airport

Its geographical location and its role as a junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway is especially beneficial for the support of trade between South-East Asia and Europe by providing access to Kazakhstan, Mongolia, China and, in the future, with the Korean peninsula and Japan. The establishment of a reliable transport system is essential for the dynamic Ural industry to participate actively in world markets.
