Kazan International Airport

Kazan International AirportLocated around 25 kilometers Southeast of Kazan, in Tatarstan, Russia. It is considered as the largest airport in Kazan and the 15th-busiest airport in Russia.

It was in 1975 when Kazan 2 was fully finished, however, in 1984, Kazan 1 which was located inside the city was shut down and Kazan 2 was renamed as Kazan Domestic Airport. It was after 2 years, in 1986 that the airport received its International rank, which was a drastic announcement as the USSR Council of Ministers only rarely allowed its citizens to fly out of USSR.

Given the facts that Kazan International Airport has undergone certain changes through the past years, travellers from around the globe are giving the airport a huge number of positive comments and reviews, giving the airport an impression of being a good one.
