History

Ufa International Airport in 1989

On 11 May 1924, the building of the first aircraft hangar near Glumilino village was completed. On 15 May, a new aviation club opened within the Bashkirian branch of AFFVS.

In 1933, the first ever route opened, encompassing over 730 km via UfaSterlitamakMeleuz–Mrakovo–BaymakMagnitogorskBeloretskUfa.

In 1956, Ufa Airport began performing technical maintenance of the Yakovlev Yak-12 airplanes and Mil Mi-1 helicopters, which were then serving the Bashkirian air routes.

Between 1959 and 1962, the airport was under reconstruction, and three hotel buildings, cargo and fuel storage facilities, a 100-seat dining hall and a garage were built. A new runway was built, as well as radio approach equipment for landing under heavy weather conditions and new radar facilities. The new runway was then capable of receiving Tupolev Tu-124, Antonov An-10 and Ilyushin Il-18 aircraft.

In 1964, a new terminal for 400 passengers per hour was built and put in operation.

In 2007, the reconstructed terminal of the airport entered into operation. The area of the air terminal has more than doubled. Many departments are located there. Four telescopic ramps, four elevators and three escalators have been installed. It can serve 600 passengers per hour.[3]
