The airline started operations in the year 1938. The first aircraft landed on the runway of the aerodrome were Y-2 and F-5. They were engaged in postal and sanitary transportation flights. A little later, the aircraft performed different tasks for agriculture. Before 77-year in the "Grozny" was only a dirt GDP, which landed on the aircraft type IL-2, 11-Lee, An and An-10-24. In the same year began to operate the new airport complex with artificial runway type and location-based for high-speed aircraft by type Tu-134. He was named "Airport North."

During the military conflict in Chechnya between 90-2000 year till airport name was changed several times:

As a result of the conflict, the airfield and the entire infrastructure were significantly affected. After the end of the war and the beginning of peaceful life, the gradual restoration of the “Terrible” began. In 2000, a directorate for airport restoration was established under the direction of A. Gakayev. 1 December 2005, a criminal case was opened by the investigative department of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation in connection with large-scale thefts. 

During the period from 1999 to 2006, in the course of restoration work, the runway was expanded and lengthened, and a drainage system was created. An airport complex was formed, capable of providing takeoffs and landings of Il-62 and Tu-154 aircraft.

Assalam Aleikum, I have a question, if air flights from Turkey are resumed and I fly from there from Europe, then upon arrival should I have a certificate from the absence of the virus? And if they don’t give them, then they won’t let me go?

Good afternoon!) I flew today from Grozny to Rostov to 11: 30 ... I had a lot of trouble at our airport "Grozny", but today I was late for my boarding pass, I checked in electronically, but I needed a ticket ... All passengers were already on the plane! But how did the airport staff respond — I was sooo pleasantly surprised!) Everyone worked together on my ticket and provided a VIP gazelle to get me on a plane! I especially want to mention the guy, the employee, unfortunately, I don’t know the name and surname, but he helped with the registration, and then many thanks to the two employees who were already at the exit! A young employee straight ran around the airport with a coupon to stamp! Thank you very much, it was very nice !!!

Salam alaikum knows who eats whether parking is paid or free at the airport? Thanks.

She arrived at the airport to buy a ticket without a surcharge of intermediaries. It turned out that the same intermediaries are sitting at the airport’s ticket office and selling e-tickets узна I found out about this after the purchase. Before buying said that the ticket is not refundable or exchange and issued an electronic. Deception and disgrace!

I lost my luggage, applied repeatedly ... made Hajj .. the reaction was zero ... filled out an act about the fact that I did not receive the baggage .... who answers in such situations ... what to do .. I myself must run around all the instances .. ..or all the same, someone is responsible ....

Management of the airport "Severny" in the city of Grozny-I ask you to pay attention to the work and attitude to passengers of your employees. The employees who check passengers going to the waiting room cause special indignation.

The terrible attitude of the line department employees at the Grozny airport. and boorish, it seemed to me that these or people saw a bloodline in me. When I began to read out my rights, my sister and I were surrounded by a crowd. Chechnya is respect for guests and friendliness, but these people changed everything at the last moment. Only one disappointment. Maybe already on the territory of the airport, Chechen customs and traditions do not work.

Tell me please, why the entry to the airport since September, more 10 mines became 100 rub?

Amazed by the work, i.e. Not the work of the employees of the Airport Grozny. No one knows their work. Do not do it properly, and if you did, we passengers of the flight Grozny-Istanbul would have learned about the transfer of the flight from 05: 00 to 03: 15 on any notification! We did not receive any call or other notification. And our plane flew away! Thank you for the uncompleted work!

I agree with you. It's terrible when people at work do not know what their duties are

Why is it that a long time is no direct flight
Almaty - Grozny?

I need to know how much cost a ticket from Grozny to Moscow 03.07.16 any flight economy class

Good evening! And how do you choose the staff? I have not heard that there is work graduates of our universities, and in fact in the Chechen State University train specialists in the sphere of service and tourism. I would like to work too, my number 89280886268, higher education, clean Russian (perfectly on any topic) and basic English.

Good afternoon!
