Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport (Russian: Аэропóрт Толмачёво) (IATA: OVBICAO: 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[3]) and Section B for international flights (27,000 sq.m., 14 check-in desks, 3 jet bridges, capacity 1,300 PAX/hour)[4]), 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).[5]

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.[6][7]

Tolmachevo is the busiest airport in Siberia and the eighth busiest airport in Russia.[8][9] In 2016, the airport served 4,097,490 passengers (+10.6%) and handled 24,882 tons of cargo (+4.9%).[10] Detailed data for years 2003-2016 is in the Traffic Statistics section below.

History[edit]

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.[11] During 2014-2015 the former international terminal was enlarged and merged with the domestic terminal which allowed to double its passenger capacity.[4] The airport celebrated its four-millionth annual passenger on December 21, 2016.[12]

Plans for its further development include construction of a new rapid-exit taxiway and 4 stands for wide-body aircraft.[13]

The airport is also home to the 337th Independent Helicopter Regiment (previously called the 562nd Air Base (Army Aviation)) flying Mil Mi-24P's and Mil Mi-8AMTSh-V's.[14]
