Yemelyanovo International Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Емельяново) (IATA: KJAICAO: UNKL) is a major airport in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, 27 km northwest of Krasnoyarsk.[2] As of May 2015, it was the 13th biggest in Russia in passenger traffic.[3]

History[edit]

Construction of the airport started in 1970. It opened for operations in 1980.[citation needed]

In 2005, the airport launched Terminal 2 for handling transit and international passengers. By 2006, the old runway coating had been replaced by asphalt-concrete layer with reinforced polymeric netting.

In November 2007, it was announced that Lufthansa Cargo might switch its Asian refueling and distribution point from Astana, Kazakhstan to Yemelyanovo Airport, because Russia would no longer permit Lufthansa the use of its air space for their Europe to Asia flights unless they could sell fuel. In July 2008 Lufthansa stated that it would move its cargo logistics hub from Astana to Yemelyanovo once the airport was brought up to ICAO safety standards.[4] The cargo terminal of Lufthansa Cargo in Yemelyanovo airport was its second largest one after Frankfurt. However, in October 2016 Lufthansa Cargo switched all flights from Yemelyanovo to another sibirean airport Tolmachevo (Novosibirsk) citing its better infrastructure and the ability to outsource certain services whereas in Krasnoyarsk the company “had to involve its own personnel and equipment”.[5]

In 2008, the modern Arrivals Terminal with the capacity of 750 passengers per hour was opened. Also in 2008, the lighting facilities were reconstructed and the new hi-intensity lighting system was installed: the centerline lights and the touchdown zone lights.[2] In 2011, the airport handled over 1.6 million passengers, a 28% increase over 2010.[1]

At present, the airport provides a full array of passenger handling services in all three terminals, including VIP services, a business lounge, baby/parent room, ATMs, shops, cafés, bars, a drugstore and a post office. Runway 29 is certified for ILS Category II operations.[2] The runway condition, the facilities and the technology of aircraft handling allows the airport to service more than 50 types of passenger and freighter aircraft, up to and including the Boeing 747 and Antonov 124.[2] Its capacity is 12 aircraft movements per hour.[2]
