Kyzyl Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Кызыл) (IATA: KYZICAO: UNKY) serves Kyzyl, the capital of the Republic of Tuva (Tyva) in the Russian Federation. The airport is located 6 km southwest of the city center.

Future[edit]

The government of Russia plans to renovate the airport, either by itself or in partnership with another agency. A runway extension is planned, so the airport may accept larger aircraft flying to and from Moscow and Saint Petersburg; or for technical stops for flights from China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and other Asian countries operating to the western part of Russia or elsewhere in Europe.[1] The runway reconstruction is planned to be completed on 20 December 2017[2]
