JSC “International airport Ufa” reports the main production indices in February 2012 increased by 10%, as compared with the same period of time in 2011. The summarized take-off mass is increased by 4,5%, amounting to 47412 tons. Passenger traffic was increased by more than 25%. 118976 people have been served by the airport in February – 24 thousand people more than in 2011.
Qualitative leap (more than 80%) has occurred at international air flights due to opening of new charter routes from Ufa. Thus, the company “Orenburg Airlines” opened flights to Vietnam, “Northern Wind” and “TRANSAERO” deliver passengers for Thailand. The number of charter flights to India is increased too.
The number of flights on regular routes is also increased.. Thus, “Turkish Airlines” added one more flight to Istanbul. At present time there are four such flights every week. The direct traffic to Arab Emirates – very popular among Republican residents – is also increased up to four flights per week.
