Since taking over operations of the Domodedovo Business Aviation Centre in April 2021 and the end of last year, UTG Private Aviation has seen 10,297 passengers use its new facility. On average the FBO handled 1,144 passengers per month with the most active months in terms of passenger traffic being May (1,440) and November (1,389).
UTG PA has been actively working to transform the FBO at Domodedovo over the last 10 months carrying out major renovation and upgrade works. In October last year it began offering flight support services for business aviation, including ground handling arrangements and obtaining overflight and landing permits worldwide.
Crews can receive navigational estimates, weather reports, NOTAMs and flight plans. It also provides additional services such as rapid PCR tests on arrival, visa support, inflight catering, transfers and concierge services and aircraft customs clearance.
As of 2022, customers can enjoy the revamped interior of the bar and lounge area and in February UTG will install a stylish wing-shaped counter along with new designer furnishings.
Meanwhile, the opening of a gourmet restaurant is scheduled for March and plans are afoot to expand the ground floor of the terminal with panoramic glass verandas and a spacious conference room, while the second floor will also be renovated and will feature new facades. Reconstruction is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
A helipad is also planned to open this year and will be located outside the airfield – but on the FBO site 50 metres from the terminal building.
