Location of airport in Tuva Republic
Kyzyl Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Кызыл) (IATA: KYZ, ICAO: UNKY) serves Kyzyl, the capital of the Tyva Republic (Tuva) in the Russian Federation. The airport is located 6 km southwest of the city center.
The government of Russia plans to renovate the airport, either by itself or in partnership with another agency. A runway extension is planned, so the airport may accept larger aircraft flying to and from Moscow and Saint Petersburg; or for technical stops for flights from China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan and other Asian countries operating to the western part of Russia or elsewhere in Europe. The runway reconstruction officially ended on 13 February 2018, with ATR 42-500 of NordStar arriving from Krasnoyarsk-Yemelyanovo. Currently, the airport plans to become international in 2018, to commence various flights to PRC (Beijing and Ürümqi) and Mongolia (Ulaanbaatar).
On 5 September 2019, Kyzyl Airport received the allowance for international flights.
