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


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 officially ended on 13th February 2018, with ATR 42-500 of NordStar arriving from Krasnoyarsk-Yemelyanovo. Currently, the airport plans to become international in 2018, to commence various flights to PRC (Beijing and Urumqi) and Mongolia (Ulaanbaatar)[2].
