Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport (Russian: Аэропóрт Толмачёво) (IATA: OVBICAO: UNNT) is situated in the town of Ob, 16 km from center of Novosibirsk, an industrial and scientific center in Siberia and Russia's third largest city.

There are two (3,600 m (11,811 ft) and 3,605 m) active runways in Tolmachevo Airport, along with 2 passenger terminals for domestic flights (Terminal A - 25,000 sq.m., 18 check-in desks, 2 jet bridges, capacity 1,800 PAX/hour[4]) and international flights (Terminal B - 11,000 sq.m., 6 check-in desks, 1 jet bridge, capacity 750 PAX/hour), 2 cargo terminals and 61 aircraft stands. Runway 16 is equipped with an ILS CAT II, which enables aircraft operations in low ceiling (30 meters) and visibility (350 meters).[5]

The airport is situated in the middle of the route from some important East-Asian cities (e.g. Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong, etc.) to Europe which makes it attractive for cargo airlines to use it for refueling stops. It serves also as a diversion airport on Polar route 1.[6][7]

Tolmachevo is the busiest airport in Siberia and the sixth busiest airport in Russia.[8][9] In 2014 the airport served 3,957,667 passengers (+5.6%) and handled 29,947 tons of cargo (-4.5%).[1] Detailed data for years 2003-2014 is in the Traffic Statistics section below.


Operations began on July 12, 1957 with the first passenger flight of Tupolev Tu-104 from Novosibirsk to Moscow. The airport was owned by United Tolmachevo Aviation Enterprise and Ministry of Civil Aviation of the USSR until 1992. The airport then became a joint stock company in 1995, with 51% owned by the state. The domestic terminal was completely renovated in 2006. Tolmachevo Airport is also the first Russian airport to receive ISO 9002-96 certificate. On November 29, 2012, first time in history the airport received its three-millionth annual passenger.[10]


Public transportation to the city is provided by a number of bus routes, as well as by private and municipal taxis. Shuttle bus service runs also beeween the airport and the Ob railway station at the Trans-Siberian Railway - a stop for Elektrichka local commuter trains and some long-distance trains in the direction of Omsk.[11]

Further expansion[edit]

In December 2011 the airport announced plans for its further development including construction of a new rapid-exit taxiway, 4 stands for wide-body aircraft and a passenger terminal (17,450 sq.m) which will effectively merge the two existing terminals into a larger joint terminal and allow to double its passenger capacity by the end of 2015. The terminal extension is currently under construction in the area between the domestic and international terminals.[12]
