There are two (3,600 metres (11,800 ft) and 3,605 metres (11,827 ft)) active runways in Tolmachevo Airport, along with one large passenger terminal with two connected sections (Section A for domestic flights (25,000 square metres (270,000 sq ft), 18 check-in desks, 2 jet bridges, capacity 1,800 passengers/hour[4]) and Section B for international flights (27,000 square metres (290,000 sq ft), 14 check-in desks, 3 jet bridges, capacity 1,300 passengers/hour)[5]), 2 cargo terminals and 61 aircraft stands. Runway 16 is equipped with an ILS CAT II, which enables aircraft operations in low ceiling (30 metres) and visibility (350 metres).[6]

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.[7] It serves also as a diversion airport on Polar route 1.[8][9]

Tolmachevo is the busiest airport in Siberia and the seventh-busiest airport in Russia.[10][11] It is also the busiest regional transit airport in Russia after Moscow MOW.[12] In 2018, the airport served 5,909,078 passengers (+18.0%)[3] and handled 31,933 tons of cargo (+8.5%).[13] Detailed data for years 2003–2018 is in the Traffic Statistics section below.

The Tolmachevo Airport is operated by Novaport since 2011.[14][15]

HistoryEdit

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.[16] During 2014-2015 the former international terminal was enlarged and merged with the domestic terminal which allowed to double its passenger capacity.[5] The airport celebrated its four-millionth annual passenger on December 21, 2016.[17] In the last hours of 2017 another milestone was reached: on December, 31, 2017 the airport handled its five-millionth annual passenger.[18]

Plans for its further development include construction of a new rapid-exit taxiway and 4 stands for wide-body aircraft.[19], as well as a further expansion of the terminal with 10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft) in 2018-2019 and 25,000 square metres (270,000 sq ft) until 2022.[20]

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.[21]
