Around-the-clock Bus To Emelyanovo Airport

Around-the-clock bus to Emelyanovo Airport to be launched in Krasnoyarsk. It will run to the airport through rail and bus stations.

      The timetable will be drawn up considering the time arrivals of Russian and international flights. A half-year temporary contract to be agreed with the selected carrier. The carrier will be announced in the near future and the route will start in late May - early June.

      Yemelyanovo International Airport (IATA: KJA, ICAO: UNKL) is a major airport in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia located 27 km northwest of Krasnoyarsk. It opened for operations in 1980. Presently, the airport handles scheduled passenger and cargo flights by over 40 Russian and overseas carriers. The runway condition, the airport facilities and the technology of aircraft handling allows the airport to service more than 50 types of passenger and freighter aircraft, up to and including the Boeing 747 and Antonov 124. The airport’s capacity is 12 aircraft movements per hour. In 2011, the airport handled over 1.6 million passengers, a 28% increase over 2010.

      At present, the airport provides a full array of passenger handling services in all three terminals, including VIP services, a business lounge, baby/parent room, ATMs, shops, cafés, bars, a drugstore and a post office.

      In November 2007, it was announced that Lufthansa Cargo might switch its Asian refueling and distribution point from Astana, Kazakhstan to Yemelyanovo Airport, because Russia would no longer permit Lufthansa the use of its air space for their Europe to Asia flights unless they could sell fuel. In July 2008 Lufthansa stated that it would move its cargo logistics hub from Astana to Yemelyanovo once the airport was brought up to ICAO safety standards. The cargo terminal of Lufthansa Cargo in Yemelyanovo airport is its second largest one after Frankfurt. The construction of the airport located some 27 km from Krasnoyarsk started in 1970. In 2005, the airport launched Terminal 2 for handling transit and international passengers. By 2006, the old runway coating had been replaced by asphalt-concrete layer with reinforced polymeric netting. In 2008, the modern Arrivals Terminal with the capacity of 750 passengers per hour was opened. Also in 2008, the airport's lighting facilities were reconstructed and the new hi-intensity lighting system was installed: the centerline lights and the touchdown zone lights.

      Runway 29 is certified for ILS Category II operations.
