Ivano-Frankivsk International Airport (Ukrainian Міжнародний аеропорт Івано-Франківськ) (IATA: IFO, ICAO: UKLI) is an airport in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine, some 4.4 km (2.7 mi) by road from the town center.

Overview[edit]

Ivano-Frankivsk airport is an international airport and has maintained border and customs operations since 1992. The airport is located at the site of the former village of Opryshivtsi. Its traffic capacity is claimed to be 400 passengers per hour.[1] Officials have made efforts in the past to promote the airport and its relative proximity to the Bukovel ski area, Vorokhta and the Carpathian National Nature Park,[2] and other quiet, spectacular mountain environments.

It is a joint military-civil airfield. A second concrete runway, 6,325 ft (1,928 m) long, is now used by the military as a parking lot, and a large apron (located northwest of the civilian terminal) is still in use by the Ukrainian Air Force[3](the 114th tactical aviation brigade is based at the airfield and has Mig-29 fighter jets).[4]
