Sheremetyevo Mulls Developer Tender

A tender could be held to find a new strategic partner for the northern zone of Sheremetyevo Airport, which includes terminals 1, 2 and 3, Interfax reported.

“We need to build a new terminal and a new tunnel,” the airport’s chief Mikhail Vasilenko said. “There will be a tender for the entire northern zone.”

Vasilenko added that a meeting to discuss the development of the Moscow aviation zone would take place in July, with preparations already underway for a possible link between Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo airports.
