VIPport is the gateway to Russia

 - December 7, 2010, 11:15 PM

Russia represents a fast-growing region and increasingly popular destination for business aviation, with a significant rise in traffic between Moscow and the Middle East, in particular. VIPport (Stand E315) offers business and VIP travelers a world-class gateway to the Russian capital at the Vnukovo-3 airport, where a comprehensive support center for business aviation has been established. The airport lies at the heart of Russian business aviation, handling around 75 percent of the country's VIP/executive traffic.

Recognizing the dramatic increase in business traffic over the last decade and the need for a dedicated fixed base operation, VIPport has been expanded considerably since its establishment. New ramp space, now totaling over 210,000 square meters, and 32,000 square meters of heated hangar space are available for a large number of aircraft, including those up to BBJ size. A newly built terminal handles international VIP traffic, while a recently completed freeway provides rapid road connections to the city center.
