Odessa airport completed a new runway (GDP), which will increase the safety and comfort of passengers, attract new air carriers and increase the number of flights.


The new runway, which was built by the company Avtomagistral-Yug, is currently undergoing tests of light signaling, radio navigation and meteorological equipment.

The length of the new runway is 2,800 m, width - 45 m. The runway is 105 cm thick, of which 40 cm is “heavy concrete”. The bearing capacity of the Odessa airport runway has almost doubled.

The large-scale project took 31 months and was completed this summer. For the construction of the new runway, were used the most modern technologies. In particular, the unique concrete-laying complex Gomaco GP4. Now, there is a certification procedure to obtain permits for operations.

“Soon, the new GDP of Odessa airport will start receiving the first planes,” it was reported by Avtomagistral-Yug.

The carrying capacity of the new runway will allow to receive almost twice as many aircraft. The new runway will open up the skies for low-cost and D-class aircraft to travel in any direction.
