Russia’s Renova Group, a subsidiary Airports of Regions, has been chosen by the Kamchatka region as an investor to renovate the new terminal at the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Yelizovo Airport.

Renova Group, the Russia’s Ministry of Transport and the Kamchatka Krai government signed a cooperation agreement at the Eastern Economic Forum at Vladivostok Sept. 6.

The new terminal will be built within 40 months. A 120-room hotel will also be built.
