Zhezkazgan Airport history

Since 1949, the old airport operated one kilometer from Zhezkazgan Railway Station, which had two unpaved runways. Often in spring, when the snow melted and because of the rains, the strip was soaked, as a result of which the airport was not able to receive airplanes. As a result, many passengers were unhappy with such frequent cancellations.  

The new airport with asphalt runways (incumbent) was built in 1971-1973 years, and the new terminal was built in the year 1985, which could serve up to two hundred passengers per hour.

On July 13, 1973, the first flight was performed on the IL-18. In the 1970s, the Dzhezkazgan United Air Squadron was formed on the territory of the airport. In 1983, it began operating the L-410 aircraft for commercial purposes, and in 1995 received two Mi-8 helicopters. In 1996, the Zhezkazgan-Air airline was opened.

Since 2004 at the airport thanks to the financial support of LLP "Kazakhmys" was held reconstruction of the runway, terminal and equipment update. Since 2008, the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan gave an international airport status.
