Little known outside of Russia, S7 Airlines (S7) is now directing some of its efforts and resources in developing its hub in Novosibirsk (OVB) in cooperation with the owners of the airport.

However, some of the characteristics of this duo are such which open the potential for OVB to become a hub of global proportions connecting Asia, North America and Europe. Should this scenario become reality, it would have an impact on many international hubs around the world.
In this white paper, ICF outlines the pros and cons of such a scenario developing.
