Aleksandr Arkhipov, Head of the Aviation business at Murmansk airport says to B-Port that Orenburzhie airline in November plans to start flights between Arkhangelsk and Murmansk with a small 17-seats propeller.

The route was operated for more than 20 years, but closed down in October 2014 after a troubled dispute with Norwegian aviation authorities on the terms of license for the Pskovavia operated An-24 aircrafts.

Construction of a new terminal at Murmansk airport is set to start in 2018.
