Daily Sabah reported that Russian President Mr Vladimir Putin will inaugurate the newly built Saratov Gagarin International Airport, a project of leading Turkish builder, ESTA Construction. The airport is located in Saratov, a city on the upstream shores of the Volga. It is named after the famous Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first human to venture into the outer space. Gagarin landed at the old Saratov Airport after his journey to space on April 12, 1961. The structure harmonizes modern architecture and history, proving it to be an architectural attraction. The Gagarin International Airport is the second airport in Russia to have been constructed from scratch after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

Since the old airport was located close to the city center, its enlargement was not deemed possible and the Saratov authorities in 2008 decided to build a brand new airport.

ESTA Construction noted that the airport also has a space museum and incorporates a technological infrastructure that makes every passenger feel like a cosmonaut. With a capacity to serve 1 million passengers, the airport covers an area of 43,147 square meters.
