Our satisfaction will have to close the airport if we have repaired the runway because it is time for maintenance of our existing runway. Moreover, our airport serves Kars, Ardahan, some parts of Artvin, and from time to time in many regions including Iğdır. The services were going to be interrupted, but instead we will be repairing the existing track after serving on this track with our track. Thus, the service will be provided without any need to shut down the airport in any way by means of alternating repairs as needed. Last year, the foundations were laid, and with the works we added, we aimed to finish the 30 October, the day of liberation in Kars, but the current works show that it can end before that.
