Kaliningrad Devau Airport is located 5 km (3.1 mi) northeast of Kaliningrad. Today it is a small general aviation airfield and is also used for sports aviation. There are Antonov An-2 aircraft parked on the site.
The airport opened as Königsberg Devau Airport (German: Flughafen Devau) in 1921 after the Polish corridor separated East Prussia from the main part of Germany. The main building was designed by the architect Hanns Hopp, who was the architect of several public and private buildings erected in Königsberg in the 1920s.
After World War II, Devau was discontinued as the main airport by the Soviets, in favor of Khrabrovo Airport. Parts of the original main building still exists and is used by the Kaliningrad Sport Aviation Club.
