Irkutsk International Airport (IKT)


The main destination for flights to Siberia and central Russia, Irkutsk International Airport is a basic facility processing more than one million passengers every year. The depressing Soviet-Era structure has been relieved by a new terminal completed in 2007, located within easy walking distance for quick (but very cold) connections. Passengers should take care to have very warm clothes available for even a quick trip outside.

Flights to Irkutsk International Airport are mostly domestic and passengers flying to Russia from the West will need to connect in Moscow or Vladivostok. There are also a few international flights to destinations in Asia including Beijing and Seoul.

Irkutsk International Airport is located three miles (5km) from downtown Irkutsk.
