Russian Ex-Minister Levitin May Manage Air Hub, Vedomosti Says

Russia’s former Transport Minister Igor Levitin may be appointed head of the company that will consolidate the government’s stakes in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo airports, Vedomosti reported, citing two unidentified officials with knowledge of the matter.

The new state company would become the country’s second largest by capital after OAO Russian Railways, the Moscow-based newspaper said. The Transport Ministry said it had no information about Levitin’s possible appointment, according to Vedomosti.
