Two strikingly designed airports will provide a memorable landing for travellers in Russia. Kurumoch International Airport in Samara, and the new Saratov Gagarin International Airport, are bright and comfortable for both airport staff and passengers.
The Saratov Gagarin, designed by the Asadov Architectural Bureau, received the Russian Crystal Daedalus Award for the best completed project. The three-story building welcomes one million passengers per year. It is made in the form of a cosmic wave and includes a cosmonautics museum. LafargeHolcim is proud to have participated in the implementation of the project.
Kurumoch was the first major facility to be reconstructed for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In the same year, the airport received its three millionth passenger. The airport welcomes up to 1400 people an hour in its 42 000 m2 terminal. For its construction, LafargeHolcim supplied Portland cement. The high-strength material provides increased durability and endurance to airfield structures and roads.
