The beginning of the creation of the airport in Pechora falls on March 1952. When a land plot of 102 hectares was allocated for the construction of the airfield at the Base of the Kaninsky forestry. In the same year, the first Li-2 aircraft landed on the unpaved airfield in Pechora, which opened the first air communication Syktyvkar - Ukhta - Pechora.
And in 1956 the airfield was relocated from the Kaninsky forestry enterprise to Pechora. At the same time, the fleet of aircraft began to expand rapidly, to the small-type aircraft Il-14, An-24, An-12, helicopters Mi-4, Mi-6, Mi-8 were added. (A monumental monument is erected to the latter on the square in front of the airport). The geography of flights gradually expanded.
Today the airport serves local air traffic. From here there are regular flights on the route Pechora - Ust-Tsilma - Syktyvkar, Pechora - Naryan-Mar.
