The airport is the hub for five regional airlines, including Yakutia Airlines and Sakha Avia.

Construction of the airport started in 1931 and was used as a stopover on the ALSIB Alaska-Siberia air route for American planes flying to Europe during World War II. The present international terminal was built in 1996. The airport serves as a diversion airport on Polar route 4.[3][4]

Yakutsk has another, smaller airport at Magan.
