Platov Opens

PLATOV AIRPORT was expected to have welcomed its first commercial services on December 1. Development of the new $786m international gateway – certified for operations by the Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, in early November following several weeks of trials – was funded by the Russian Government and is part of a wider-reaching programme to develop the country’s transport infrastructure. The facility, which is able to accommodate up to 3 million passengers a year, is intended to replace Rostov-on- Don’s existing airport, currently slated to close in March. It features a single 11,800ft (3,600m) runway, a 538,000sq ft (50,000m²) terminal with nine contact gates and parking for up to 45 aircraft. Existing services to the southeastern city will be transferred to Platov during the first quarter of the year, giving the new airport connections to 24 destinations via 18 different airlines (13 from Russia, including based Azimuth Airlines, and five international carriers).

About Airliner World

In the January issue of Airliner World, we bid farewell to KLM’s Fokkers, ending a 97-year association between the Dutch flag carrier and the manufacturer, we examine how a partial privatisation could offer Pakistan International Airlines renewed hope for its future, and we go behind the scenes with launch customer Qatar Airways as it prepares to take delivery of its first Airbus A350-1000. Elsewhere in this edition, we find out Hebridean Air Services has forged a unique and highly valued link with the remote island communities it serves, we find out how Leipzig/Halle has transformed from sleepy backwater to major European cargo hub, and we hear how AeroLink Uganda is playing a quirky but important role in connecting its home market. We also shine the spotlight on Singapore Airlines’ new A380 cabin, and we bring you a selection of photos from NBAA 2017 and from Orly, Paris’ second airport. Lastly, we bring you our comprehensive coverage of worldwide news, including a full round-up from the Dubai Airshow, plus Embraer eyes an April debut for the E-Jet E2, ATR wins a major order from FedEx, Emirates takes delivery of its 100th Airbus A380, and Boeing delivers the first 737 MAX to China. We also have all our regular sections covering the latest commercial aircraft acquisitions, up-to-date accident reports and developments from the world of aviation training and MROs.
