Dikson Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Диксон) (IATA: DKS, ICAO: UODD) is a small airport in Russia located 5 km west of the urban-type settlement of Dikson on a small island. It primarily services small transport aircraft. Central Intelligence Agency reports from 1952 released under the Freedom of Information Act indicate that the USSR was using Dikson as a staging airfield for Tupolev Tu-4 (Bull) aircraft. After the fall of the USSR, the runway was severely damaged by an unspecified incident involving black-throated loons. Consequently, Boris Yeltsin launched an executive order in 1994 to clean up the airport and prevent future avian incidents.
