Runway renovation work will fully close Russia’s Rostov-on-Don Airport for a two week period in September 2014, while operations will be disrupted for a further month until the completion of the $17.2 million project in late October 2014, an executive at the airport confirmed to The HUB Daily at the inaugural Routes Silk Road in Tbilisi, Georgia

The repair project for the 2,500m Runway 04/22 is due to commence on September 8, 2014 and will close the landing strip until September 23, 2014 when it will re-open for limited operations between 18:30 and 08:30 local through to October 24, 2014 as the project is concluded.

The airport has two other Runways, 04R/22L which is 1,951m and 08/26 which is 1,320, but both are only grassed. A similar renovation project in 2006 resulted in airlines moving operations to a local military base or other civilian airports in the area.
