Airport in Ivanovo
The airport «Southern» in Ivanovo is located towards the southeastern outskirts of the city, at a distance of seven kilometers from its center. The airstrip of the airline, covered with reinforced concrete, is 2.5 kilometers. Until 1990, air passenger and cargo transportation was carried out from here to more than 35 cities in Russia. Unfortunately, recently the number of flights from Ivanovo has significantly decreased..
The history of the creation of the airport goes back to 1939, when a link of Po-2 and U-2 aircraft was founded, which performed cargo, postal and sanitary air transportation..
In 1952, new An-2s were added to the existing aircraft, and by the end of the 50s a new terminal building was launched. Gradually renewing its fleet of cars, the airport expanded the geography of flights and increased passenger traffic. By 1990, the airline already served more than 400 thousand passengers a year, and in 1997 it received international status. But already in 2003, due to the financial crisis, the airport ceased operations and mothballed production facilities. His work was restored only in 2006. After the reconstruction of the runway and the terminal building, flights to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Anapa, and other cities of Russia were resumed.
