Huge (re)construction is going on in VKO. Runway 1 (06/24) and most part of the ramp are under reconstruction till the and of this year. At the same time second phase of terminal A construction is near the end.

Few days ago a had a chance to made some shots of second phase of VKO terminal A construction: inner atrium and ground control tower:

Ramp reconstruction. All ramp surface is lowered about 3 meters down to match terminal and runway level. Most works will be finished Nov 30, 2012.

'Buffer zone' between construction site on the left and already opened passenger zone on the right.

Inner atrium. This part will be for international departures.

Ground control tower

There will be the fountain in the base of the tower. There are two-three levels construction around the tower: lounges, shops, restaurants and even the hotel.

Right side

Iron forest. Hard to believe but this all will be opened for passengers this year!

That looks like it should be a pretty dramatic view for folks!

So is this airport adding capacity or are they taking out one of the other Moscow airports or re-configuring for domestic only or something?

VKO is adding capacity and wants to increase it's annual passenger flow from 8 mln in 2011 to 20 mln both domestic and international passengers in 2015. LH and TK started flying from VKO this year, some people said that other * members will going to move their flights to VKO. Transaero (UN), ZI, Bluebird Airways, Georgian Airways (A9) also came to VKO this year.

Good for VKO. Always felt it was under-performing in terms of its potential, convenient location etc. The architecture looks pretty nice, should hopefully be a pretty satisfactory pax experience all round.
