Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport (Russian: Аэропóрт Толмачёво) (IATA: OVB, ICAO: UNNT) is situated in the town of Ob, 16 km from the center of Novosibirsk, an industrial and scientific center in Siberia and Russia's third largest city.
There are two (3,600 m (11,811 ft) and 3,605 m) active runways in Tolmachevo Airport, along with 1 large passenger terminal with two connected sections (Section A for domestic flights (25,000 sq.m., 18 check-in desks, 2 jet bridges, capacity 1,800 PAX/hour) and Section B for international flights (27,000 sq.m., 14 check-in desks, 3 jet bridges, capacity 1,300 PAX/hour)), 2 cargo terminals and 61 aircraft stands. Runway 16 is equipped with an ILS CAT II, which enables aircraft operations in low ceiling (30 meters) and visibility (350 meters).
The airport is situated in the middle of the route from some important East-Asian cities (e.g. Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong, etc.) to Europe which makes it attractive for cargo airlines to use it for refueling stops. It serves also as a diversion airport on Polar route 1.
Tolmachevo is the busiest airport in Siberia and the sixth busiest airport in Russia. In 2015 the airport served 3,703,211 passengers (-6.4%) and handled 23,706 tons of cargo (-20.8%). Detailed data for years 2003-2015 is in the Traffic Statistics section below.
Operations began on July 12, 1957 with the first passenger flight of Tupolev Tu-104 from Novosibirsk to Moscow. The airport was owned by United Tolmachevo Aviation Enterprise and Ministry of Civil Aviation of the USSR until 1992. The airport then became a joint stock company in 1995, with 51% owned by the state. The domestic terminal was completely renovated in 2006. Tolmachevo Airport is also the first Russian airport to receive ISO 9002-96 certificate. On November 29, 2012, first time in history the airport received its three-millionth annual passenger. During 2014-2015 the former international terminal was enlarged and merged with the domestic terminal which allowed to double its passenger capacity.
Plans for its further development include construction of a new rapid-exit taxiway and 4 stands for wide-body aircraft.
