On 22 June 2014, Transaero Airlines began operating the Boeing 747-400 from Moscow. The airline operated the aircraft into the airport during the peak holiday seasons on Sundays, with the aircraft carrying a maximum of 522 passengers. To that date, the 747-400 is the largest aircraft to have operated into the airport.[6]

In July 2016, Novaport bought the Mineralnye Vody Airport from Aeroinvest.[7]
