Russia’s Transport Ministry announced it is analysing contracts between Moscow’s airports and airlines to learn who is responsible for the recent problems encountered at Domodedovo and Sheremetyevo airports caused by icy rains (Interfax, 02-Jan-2010). Transport Minister, Igor Levitin, said: "We are examining Domodedovo's contracts with power supply companies to find out who was responsible for the power outage. This was either a force majeure, or someone failed to perform their duties." The ministry is also looking at contracts of Aeroflot, Transaero, and other airlines that cancelled or delayed services.

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.
