Kaluga Region Government pays particular attention to the development of transport and logistics industry. For instance, there are freight village multimodal transport and logistics terminals, customs and warehousing facilities in the region. Motor road, railroad and air transport infrastructure is being developed.
Kaluga International Airport is an unrivaled project in terms of the time of its implementation, financing, technologies and speed of construction. Its runway (length – 2,200 m, width – 45 m) was fully modernized in mere 5 months. Simultaneously taxi ways, apron, and ramp were built, air navigation systems were replaced, and lighting navigation aids meeting ICAO Category I standard were installed in less than a year.
Ermolino airport is to become another project to support the air transportation infrastructure development. As it is located in the vicinity of Moscow, it may become a cargo port, a major cargo processing center, which is to promote further development of Kaluga Region logistics industry.
