Until the mid-1950s, the Smyshlyaevka airport was the main airport in Kuybyshev. With the development of the aircraft construction, the existing port could not accept new jetliners, and its expansion and modernization were not possible. This led to the creation of a new aviation facility near the village of Kurumoch. It was opened in 1960. The first directions were Moscow and Mineralnye Vody. From 1986 to 1988, there was a large-scale reconstruction. The second runway was opened, and various airport services were established. In 1992, it acquired the international status, and a year later, Samara Airlines was established, which existed until 2009.
The construction of a new air terminal began in 2013. It was completed two years later and became the Russian Federation's first infrastructure facility, erected in preparation for the World Cup. In 2017, Kurumoch Airport was awarded the prestigious "4 stars" award from the established Skytrax agency. And in 2018, it successfully welcomed guests of the World Championship participants.
