'''allowing freight from Southeast Asia to arrive in the city in Ilyushin Il-76 freighters that are barred from Western Europe by noise regulations'''
The airport is not so far from the EU borders, would the EU let them fly in (low) on approach over EU territory even if it still doesn't meet EU noise standards?
Khrabrovo International Airport is located 24km north of Kaliningrad, east off the Zelenogradsk highway. The airport, part of which is still military, is a bare landing strip with few frills for passengers. SAS and Aeroflot are the only commercial carriers. The international terminal is 3km from the domestic terminal.
Drivers have little respect for the road and police stop motorists often. Major city streets and the roads linking Kaliningrad city with the coast are OK
, but less travelled roads can have huge potholes and be unpaved.
Yep, sounds like a perfect infrastructure..
