Novgorod Yurievo Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Новгород Юрьево) (IATA: NVR, ICAO: ULNN) is a former airport serving the city of Velikiy Novgorod, Novgorod Oblast, Russia, located 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) southwest of the city centre. It was officially closed in 2002, and officially replaced by the Krechevitsy Airport. It was a busy airport during the Soviet era, with regular flights to Minsk, Moscow, Krasnodar and other destinations. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, the airport became abandoned due to economic stagnation. In 1996, the airport was hosting only one regular daily flight to Moscow, but these flights were cancelled soon afterwards due to a small numbers of travellers deterred by high ticket prices.
