History and development of the airport "Anapa Vityazevo"

Like most airports in the country, "Anapa Vityazevo" was originally designed exclusively for military use. Yet the first regular flights started to go back in the year 1934 from Anapa, Krasnodar (now Paszkowski).

As for the larger development of civil aviation in the airport, it began with the 1960 year. Regular flights were carried out by An-2 type aircraft to such cities: Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk, Krasnodar. At this time, the number of airport employees was 10 people. 

The building of the air terminal "Anapa Vitiazevo" was built in 1965 year. At the moment this building is used as an ambulance station in the city. This year the airport began receiving more modern aircraft such as An-24, which were able to significantly expand the geography of air traffic. Thus, flights to Moscow, Donetsk, Sukhumi, Kharkov and Kerch became possible from Anapa. In summer, the flow of passengers increased significantly, because Anapa is a resort town. It is because of this that the airport was moved out of town. This also allowed the acceptance of large airplanes of the An-10 type. All vehicles began to make planting near the village of Vityazevo.

It is at this point in the year 1969 began to build a full-scale airport, which was named "Anapa Vityazevo." During the construction of the military insisted on creating long strips 2,5 kilometers.
