Astana International Airport can host up to 750 people per hour. Within the first nine months of this year, passenger traffic at the main air gates of the capital constituted 2.2 million people. If this number of passengers is arriving in Astana at usual time, then the number of visitors to the capital from other regions of Kazakhstan and other countries of the world during EXPO-2017 International Specialized Exhibition will be increased significantly.
Therefore, Passenger Terminal Reconstruction Project will be implemented to increase inbound capacity and provide quality customer service at the airport of Astana.
As reported at the press service of the organization, the new passenger terminal will be located on the area of about 40 thousand sq. m. The reconstruction project also involves creation of power, communications and external networks facilities, upgrading airport lighting equipment and meteorological line, as well as overhaul of runway and platform.
