Bulat Utemuratov’s Foundation will build a new airport terminal in Kyzylorda

After modernisation, the airport will handle twice more passengers than at present.

The Kyzylorda Oblast Akimat (administration) signed a memorandum of cooperation with Bulat Utemuratov’s Foundation. This was reported today by the Oblast Akim, Gulshara Abdykalikova, at a briefing in the Central Communications Service under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The purpose of the agreement is construction of a new modern passenger terminal of the Korkyt-Ata airport to enable its capacity expansion and compliance with modern international standards. After modernisation, the airport will be able to handle up to 300 passengers and hour that is twice more than the passenger flow.

The Foundation is going to fully finance the project the start of which is scheduled for 2022. The new terminal will be located on an area of 3.9 hectares. After completion of construction, the terminal will be signed off to the Kyzylorda Oblast Akimat.

According to the Kyzylorda Oblast Akim, Gulshara Abdykalikova, expansion of the airport is a long pending issue. “Due to the high costs of construction of a new airport, we decided that the most feasible solution would be to expand and modernise the existing infrastructure by means of building a new terminal and to bring it in compliance with international standards. The signed memorandum and financial support rendered by Bulat Utemuratov’s Foundation will help to implement this strategically important project promptly and on time,” noted the head of the region.
