Barnaul Gherman Titov International Airport (Russian: Международный аэропорт Барнаул имени Германа Титова) (IATA: BAX, ICAO: UNBB) (sometimes referred to as Barnaul West or Mikhaylovka) is a major airport in Altai Krai, Russia located 17 km west of Barnaul. It contains large facilities and a remote tarmac for military use. The airport services airliners and helicopters of all sizes, including planes as large as the Boeing 747, and the Il-96.[1]

Barnaul Airport is named after Soviet cosmonaut Gherman Titov, an Altai Krai native who was the second human being (after Yuri Gagarin) to visit outer space.[2]

History[edit]

  • The first airport in this location was built in 1937 as a base for Soviet Po-2 biplanes.
  • On March 12, 1967, a new modern airport complex was opened with a 2,000-metre (6,600 ft) runway, taxiways, an apron, hotel, and office space. That same year, direct flights to Moscow began.
  • On January 2, 1975, the runway was lengthened from 2,000 to 2,500 metres (6,600 to 8,200 ft), and the airport began to receive Tu-154 planes.
  • In 1995, the airport officially became an international airport.
  • In 1998, the airport's runway was further lengthened to its current length of 2,850 metres (9,350 ft).
  • On June 26, 2008, a new arrival area was opened with a capacity of 500 people per hour.

A new 7,000-square-metre (75,000 sq ft) international area and runway extension are planned, which will allow the airport to receive all types of aircraft without restrictions.
