Kurumoch international airport (part of Airports of Regions Holding) has begun servicing the second runway (Runway-2) after its reconstruction. A flight of Yamal Airlines from Rostov-on-Don on 31 December 2017 was the first flight that landed on the renewed runway. During the New Year holidays, the aircraft was received and dispatched on the new infrastructure: more than 600 take-off and landing operations have been performed since the beginning of the year. New up-to-date equipment of category III A which meets the ICAO standards and enables flights at any time, in almost all weathers, was installed at the airport.
Runway-2 is 3,001 meters long and 45 meters wide, with PCN (Pavement Classification Number) of 82/R/C/X/T; the runway is paved with asphalt concrete. These characteristics of Runway-2 make it possible to serve practically all modern long-range aircraft like Boing-777 and Airbus-340 and to carry passengers from the region comfortably over long distances without transit in large cities. The airport infrastructure renovation will increase the carrying capacity of Samara Airport and will ensure the required level of flight safety.
