Twelve Architects stated (26-Sep-2013) it was selected as the preferred bidder for a new airport complex in Russia's Rostov on Don, which will be constructed in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The design features an international and domestic terminal that will link to a train station, car park, hotel and office buildings. The terminal will initially have handling capacity of five million passengers a year, but has been designed to accommodate future expansion. The terminal will be delivered across two phases as part of a wider transport development programme. In the first phase, the new passenger terminal will cover an area of 50,000sqm which may later be increased to 100,000sqm. Yuzhny Greenfield Airport, referred to as the ‘Southern Hub’ due to its southern location in Russia, will be funded by the Airports of Regions, part of Renova Group, the largest airport holding company in Russia. Airports of Regions general director Eugene Chudnovsky said, “Southern Hub will serve not only the base of passenger traffic in the region and the Southern Federal District, but also take over part of the flow volume of Moscow airports.” Twelve Architects was selected from 11 design firms. Airports of Regions confirmed a general contractor will be selected by the end of 2014 to begin construction on the new terminal. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

The Global Airport Development (GAD World) conference was held in Lisbon, between 29-Nov and 01-Dec-2016. This CAPA report chronicles the presentations and debates that took place on the first two days, including selected ‘stream’ sessions on both days.
There was, inevitably, a political overlay to the event, with the (Jun-2016) UK referendum on continuing membership of the European Union (‘Brexit’), the (Nov-2016) election of President Trump in the US and associated ‘uncertainty’ dominating events.
Otherwise, the concern was, as always, the ‘pipeline’ of airport privatisation details, or rather the lack of them, while the hope was for the continuation of the trend towards PPP deals.
