Due to the unique geographical location on the cross of the air routes from China and South East Asia to Europe the Airport has very good opportunities to develop as a connecting hub.

For this purpose the Airport develops a unique transfer project based on cooperation of partner airlines and Russian Transport Clearing House. At present there are more than 10 Russian and CIS airlines already participating in the project and the airport works for inviting even more Carriers. The second important way of development transfer carriages via the airport is close cooperation with base Carrier S7 Airlines & Globus which conveniently connects their own flights at the airport. The third way is individual Interline agreements between the airlines operating via OVB.

The Airport on the constant basis analyzes the existing transfer opportunities and advises the airline partners on the opportunity to attract it. For the purposes of facilitation and smoothing of transfer passenger handling at the Airport a construction of connecting gallery between the Terminal A and Terminal B was started in the end of 2012 which is planned for completion in 2013.

Siberian cities in a 300km radius extend the catchment to 7 million people. The city of Novosibirsk itself has a population of 1.5 million.
