NOVOSIBIRSK International Airport celebrates the 50th anniversary of its terminal building
November 21, 2013, NOVOSIBIRSK International Airport marks 50 years from the date of opening its first terminal building.
The first terminal building at Novosibirsk airport was put into operation in 1963, six years after the airport's foundation. Before this time, all passenger services were carried inside the control tower. New three-storey building with a total area of 10,000 m2 combined simplicity and chasteness. Tile panels with Novosibirsk landmarks, bright columns, walls decorated with blue tiles, tiled floors, plenty of light, a waiting room on the second floor, a special waiting room for international tourists, bar, restaurant with 150 seats fitted with the latest kitchen equipment, a comfortable mother and child room – that was the interior of the first airport terminal in Novosibirsk. The terminal had a red entrance roof overhang which became the symbol of Tolmachevo airport for decades.
In 1996 Terminal B with the initial capacity of 450 passengers per hour was built to serve international passengers. In 2004-2009 passenger terminal complex of Novosibirsk airport experienced a large-scale reconstruction and gained its current shape. Currently, the passenger terminal complex of NOVISIBIRSK International Airport has total area of 36,000 m2 and its capacity makes up 1,800 passengers per hour on domestic flights and 750 passengers per hour on international flights. In 2014 through the modernization of Terminal B (international flights), the capacity will increase up to 1,300 passengers per hour and its area will double. During the modernization it is also planned to connect both terminals with a gallery creating a single airport complex.
In honor of the anniversary the territory of the airport was decorated with archival photographical banners of the terminal complex. More details about the development of the airport complex are available on History page of NOVOSIBIRSK International Airport website.
