Kazan-2 was an airport for local air lines in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia since 1979 till ends of 1980s. It had passenger's Antonov An-2 and L-410 small airplanes and few helicopters till pulling down.

An old airfield for Kazan's major airport (that situated in a territory out of city since 1979) was founded probably around the World War II era. This place located 8 km northeast of city's centre and now replaced by the residential quarters "Kazan - 21st century" and other civil objects such "Azure skies" one of the highest building in Kazan and the largest international hippodrome of Russia. But the corresponding part of the city still carries the name 'Old Airport' (tat. İske Aeroport, rus. Старый Аэропорт).
