"The opening of our own helipad is also planned for 2022. It will be located on the FBO territory 50 meters from the Terminal, but outside the airfield. It will complement the existing opportunities for helicopters landing on the Domodedovo airfield. It will be a great alternative to the car journey, thereby solving the matter of transport accessibility and the traffic situation. "
