The agreements cover the cooperation of the cargo hub with international airlines and logistics operators that process the export and import of goods through Zhukovsky.

We will form a single chain of services, allowing cargo shippers to arrange transportation from the point of departure to the point of destination by all means of transport,” Solodilin specified.

In an earlier interview with TASS, the chief officer said that the volume of cargo turnover through Zhukovsky is expected to grow by some 66% next year to around 30,000 tons, from the 18,000 tons forecast for the current year.
