The Russians Are Coming: Russian Hubs Are Playing an Increasing Role in The World's Air Cargo Market

In this article the author describes the relatively large share of the world’s cargo flights handled by Russian airport hubs and as well as the desired share over the long run. These airports aim to handle 13 million tons of cargo per year by 2030, which would be eleven percent of the world's cargo, and consequently generate about $100 billion for Russia. The article includes a discussion of the potential locale of the future cargo hub, with both Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo airports being mentioned by the future operator. Another airport mentioned that has recently, as of 2007, constructed a new cargo terminal is the Krasnoyarsk airport. This airport promises to expedite cargo due to the Russian government's declaration of its status as a free transit zone, which removes certain customs processes.
