The second most important airport in the Stavropol Krai is located in the Stavropol suburb, about 18 km from the city center. It serves regular flights from the airports of the Moscow air hub, St. Petersburg, and Sochi, as well as business aircraft.
They started to use the first air station of Stavropol in 1937. The 220th Civil Aviation Division was transferred there from Pyatigorsk. Its task was to transport passengers and deliver mail around the region. The airfield occupied its current location in 1963, and six years later, the airline received An-24 and Yak-40 aircraft. The heyday of the airport came in the early 1990s, after the privatization and creation of the "Stavropol Joint Stock Airline" (SJST). The geography of international flights expanded significantly, and the total number of routes reached 70. In 1999, the court declared the privatization illegal, and "SJST" stopped its activities and existence.
In 2010, after the establishment of the state enterprise Stavropol International Airport, positive changes began to take place. Certificates were received for the acceptance of Boeing 737 medium-haul airliners. The reconstruction of the air terminal started. Contracts were signed with several Russian airlines, including S7 Airlines and Utair. In 2018, according to the results of a national competition, Stavropol airport was named after Alexander Suvorov.
