“Gazpromneft Aero’s development strategy involves expanding the company’s business at airports in Siberia, where the trans-Siberian air routes run from Europe to Asia,” said Gazpromneft Aero CEO Vladimir Yegorov. “In making substantial investment in the development of our new assets, and the fueling complex in Kemerovo in particular, we are building a modern infrastructure that will provide airlines with a high level of service.
