Platov airport began operations

The first flights arrived at Rostov-On-Don new airport today 18th November 2017. The terminal was designed and delivered by Twelve Architects.

The new airport has been named ‘Platov’ in honour of Matvei Platov, who was a Russian general who commanded the Don Cossacks.

Platov Airport is the first new international airport to be built in Russia’s modern era.

For the past three and a half years, Twelve Architects have designed the new terminal, from winning the international competition all the way through to construction, via its site-based expert team.

Alex Bitus, Head of Transport at Twelve said: “Our real measure of success is whether Platov comes to be rated by passengers as one of the Russia’s best airport terminals for years to come.”
