Tomsk Bogashevo Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Богашёво) (IATA: TOF, ICAO: UNTT) is an airport that serves Tomsk, Russia. It is located approximately 20 km south-east of Tomsk city center, near the village Bogashevo in Tomsky District of Tomsk Oblast.

History

The airport opened in November 1967 and replaced another airport within the Kashtak district in the city of Tomsk. The Kashtak site was rebuilt with multistory apartment buildings and turned into a bedroom community of Tomsk.

In 2004 and 2005, the passenger terminal and the open space in front of the airport were reconstructed at a cost of 70 million roubles.[citation needed]

Construction of a new runway and facilities for flights to Central Asia began in 2006. The construction budget for 2006 totaled 120 million roubles.

In fall 2006, construction began on a new road connecting Bogashevo to the Akademgorodok scientific research district.

In 2020, Russian politician and government critic Alexey Navalny fell ill after drinking tea in the airport cafe. He was scheduled to fly home to Moscow. It is believed the cup of tea was poisoned and he fell unconscious, with the plane diverting to Omsk instead.[3]
