From 2001, Kryvyi Rih International Airport is in the communal property of the city for the purpose of financial support.

Aircraft carried out internal flights to Lviv, Kyiv, and Donetsk and international flights to Istanbul, Anakena, Zagreb, Moscow, Thessaloniki, and other cities. They transported 5.7 thousand passengers and 46.9 tons of cargo.[2]
