"Realization of projects aimed at socio-economic development of territories is one of key aims of our activities," stressed the deputy director general of the MMC "Norilsk Nickel" Vyacheslav Poltavtsev, "Moreover, in the nearest future we are planning to extensively modernize production capacities and realize several projects which need substantial funding. That is why we need to have full understanding of which direction we need to take in order to efficiently develop transport logistics in your region."
There are no plans to cancel local flights within the Region. According to "Norilsk Nickel", modernization of air fleet might cause its reduction, although it shall not reflect on passengers and routes operated by the Airline. On the other hand, Mr.Orlov promised to personally control air fares set by air carriers.
