Vitebsk International Airport (East)
Belarus, Vitebsk

The development of aviation in Vitebsk began in 1932, when the first airfield with an artificial runway was built here. Initially, the airport “Vitebsk” was located in another place and was called Vitebsk (SOUTH), it was built as an airfield of the air forces of the Soviet army. The first landing of the aircraft in Vitebsk was in May 1914, when the world's first flight of the aircraft on the route Kiev-Petersburg took place in one daylight under the command of Pyotr Nikolayevich Nesterov. Before World War II, there were no scheduled flights to Vitebsk, although the "Vitebsk Airport" was opened on 11/07/1934. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, the airfield turned from a military into a civilian airport and took a significant place in the development of civil aviation in Belarus. Due to the rapid development of Vitebsk and the growth of housing construction, it was decided to move the airport out of the city. Since 1978, the current airport began operating, located 10 kilometers from the city. At present, Vitebsk Airport is a branch of the State Enterprise Belaeronavigation.
