On April 16, the new terminal of Simferopol International Airport hosted the first flight. The terminal was called "Crimean Wave" due to its unusual sea-wave form - a unique solution that is unrivaled throughout the world.
The airport has an area of 78 000 sq m with the annual capacity of 6,5 mln of people.
A great number of surprises were in store for the guests of the new terminal: Simfi the Robot, hologram, photo zones and cosplayers dressed as characters of computer games and movies. "Green Wall", the largest plant wall in Europe, excited much interest.
Leader of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Aksenov and Speaker of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea Vladimir Konstantinov visited the new terminal to meet the first passenger. Sergey Aksenov noted that the new terminal was erected in mere 22 months due to well-coordinated efforts of builders and the airport team.
Beer and Soft Drinks Plant «KRYM» also met the first passengers as the Water Partner of Simferopol Airport. Upon landing, they could try "Krymskaya" mineral water and appreciate the flavor of canned "Lemonade" and "Mojito".
