Airport in Taganrog
Airport in Taganrog «Southern» - the second largest airport in the Rostov region, located 3 kilometers from the city center towards the southern outskirts. The runway of the airline, 2.8 kilometers long, is reinforced with reinforced concrete and is capable of accommodating An-24, Il-96, TU-154 aircraft, as well as lighter aircraft of any type.
At the moment, Yuzhny Airport is used in three directions: for civil traffic, as an alternate airfield and as an experimental airfield of the Taganrog Aviation Plant.
It should be noted that during the period of existence of the air harbor, attempts were made to establish regular passenger air transportation. However, until now, air passenger traffic has been carried out only sporadically..
So at the beginning of the first decade, UTair regularly operated flights from Taganrog to Moscow, but by 2011 the flights were stopped due to unprofitability.
In 2012 the company «Yamal» began air transportation on the Bombardier CRJ-200 airliner, designed for 50 passengers. Flights were operated daily, 6 times a week, but in November of the same year, the company stopped passenger traffic from Taganrog.
Currently, the airline is carrying out a large-scale reconstruction, the purpose of which is to obtain international status and expand the geography of flights..
The airport modernization plan includes the construction of a new airport complex, modernization of the runway and equipping it with modern navigation systems, construction of a new flight control center, reconstruction of highways and renovation of the airport hotel complex..
The airport in Taganrog Yuzhny offers a limited range of services - only the most basic for passengers. It is assumed that by 2015 the airport will gain momentum and offer passengers more comfortable conditions..
The airport is located within the city limits, so there is regular public transport from here. Bus number 5 - runs along the route «Aviators Square» - «Brickworks». Bus number 13 - goes to the residential complex «Russian field».
Trolleybus No. 14 will take you to the railway station. The final stop of the trolleybus No. 1 is the Central Market. City taxi services also offer their services..
