Russian Federation : Far Easterners choose names for their airports: the second stage of the project Great Names of Russia is underway.

Until October 28, residents of eight Far Eastern regions can offer their version of the name of their airport. This can be done on the site of the All-Russian project Velikiemenemena.rf, as well as with the help of the participants of the Victory Volunteers Corps, who began working in the regions.

At the first stage of the Great Names of Russia competition, regional public chambers, based on the results of discussions at their sites, compiled a primary list. This stage is complete. Tentative lists include from three to ten candidate options for each airport.

Airport "Yakutsk" can get the name of Valery Kuzmin, the first pilot of the Yakuts, Honored Pilot of the USSR, participant of the ferry route Alsib. November 7th, since the birth of the famous commander of the Yakutsk Joint Aviation Squad, will turn 100 years old. Kuzmin was one of the first pilots of Yakutia, who had flown a million kilometers, the only Yakut pilots who mastered 12 types of aircraft. Today, the Yakutia Aviation Museum is operating in the air terminal. If the assignment of the name Kuzmin to the Yakutsk Airport receives support, the airport administration will be able to complement the design of the terminal on the subject of Yakutia aviation, create installations and expositions dedicated to the life and contribution of Valery Kuzmin.

Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Airport can be given the name of St. Innocent (Veniaminov).

Recall that in the third stage from October 29 to November 7, with the help of sociological surveys, the three leaders will be determined for each airport. From 8 to 30 November will be the final vote. Any resident of Russia will be able to vote, but only once. This can be done on the website of Velikiemena.rf, on Vkontakte or Odnoklassniki social networks, using SMS messages or by filling in a questionnaire to be published in print media, as well as being distributed to volunteer posts located at railway stations and at airports. Fill out the form will be on board the aircraft. Names that ultimately complement the official names of airports will be announced on December 5th.

We note that the assignment of the name of the airport does not mean its renaming, therefore it does not entail a change of the international code or other changes in the air transportation system.
