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.


The government of Russia plans to find an agency or it is going to do it itself to renovate the airport. For example, to make the runway longer, so the airport may accept big "boeing" aircrafts, as to Moscow and Saint Petersburg, as to be an airport for technical landings for flights from China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and other Asian countries following to Western Part of Russia or Europe. When the renovation begins and from which part it will begin, it is not yet figured out.[1]
