History of Lutsk Airport

Abandoned Lutsk Airport, Ukraine

Construction of a new civil airport in Lutsk began in 1982 in the USSR. The city authorities could not agree with the military on the joint basing of military and civil aviation at the Vyshkov airfield, which was located within the city boundaries and had an artificial runway with a length of 2500 meters.

Construction began from scratch near the village of Krupa, 11 km from Lutsk. An airfield with a runway of 1600 meters and a new terminal appeared here. The length of the concrete already at that time did not allow to receive modern aircraft.
