Airport in Stavropol
The international airport in Stavropol is located 12 kilometers from the city in the direction of its northeastern part, belongs to the first class airports and opens air routes to any country in the world for the inhabitants of the region. Its area is more than 400 hectares and provides 13 parking areas for servicing aircraft.
The runway of the airfield has a length of 2600 meters, which makes it possible to receive various types of aircraft, including heavy airliners.
The airport's capacity is more than a million people per year, excluding freight and postal traffic, which is about 2 thousand tons per year..
The airport in Stavropol (its second name is Shpakovskoye - given to him at the place of deployment in the area of the village of Shpakovskoye) was built in 1963. In parallel with civilian units, units of the Russian border air force were based here.
In the early 90s of the last century, the airport connected the region with more than 60 cities of the Russian Federation and foreign countries. More than 20 flights in different directions were served per day. However, the crisis in the country hindered the development of the airline in full. And, unfortunately, today only flights to Moscow, St. Petersburg and Greece (Thessaloniki) are operated from here..
It should be noted that in recent years the airport has been developing steadily, and big changes are expected here in the near future. The terminal was reconstructed, the number of flights increased, the construction of a new hotel is planned.
