About Kurumoch Intl. Airport

In 1957, the construction of the airport started for the use of military aircrafts and the training of pilots of the Soviet Union in the city of Samara and was officially opened in 1960. An airport was needed for civilian flights in the region, so since 1961, commercial flights started to operate from Kurumoch Airport. New hangars, baggage facilities, a hotel, a second runway and a new airport infrastructure were built during the expansion works which were carried out at the airport between 1965 and 1970. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the name of the airport was changed to Kuybyshev Airport in 1991 by Russian officials, and a year later it succeeded to gain international status. In 1993, a terminal building was constructed and today it is still being used as the main and only terminal. In 2002, the airport was renamed to its offical name, Kurumoch International Airport, after the Kurumoch region, where the airport was built. Besides Samara, the airport also serves the city of Tolyatti in the region and Kurumoch International Airport has an annual passenger average of more than two million people.
