Brief history of Odesa airport

Odesa International Airport accommodated its first passenger flight in 1924. But actually, its history dates back to 1908, when Arthur Anatra, an entrepreneur and aviation amateur, bought a plot of land in a steppe near Odesa, placed a repair and assembling workshop, and then a "school" airfield for training and test flights. Interestingly, the name "School" has stuck to the airfield and even became official.

On May 21st, 1924 airfield “School” accommodated first technical flight, on May 25th — the very first passenger one. Since then, the history of the airport, which is now one of the largest in Ukraine has begun.

Although this was not always the case. It was not even the main airport in Odesa until in 1961, when a runway of 2800 meters, a platform, and a building of the terminal were built on the territory of the "School" airfield. The same year airport began to accommodate airplanes The Tupolev Tu-104. Only three airports of the Ukrainian SSR could then accommodate airliners of this type — and Odesa airport was one of them.
