The airport begins its history in 1930 when the construction of Mariupol airport started. The first flight ‘Kharkiv-Stalin-Mariupol-Berdyansk’ was in the spring of 1931. However, due to economic problems, the airport was not functioning until the autumn of 1932. For the same reasons, it was not possible to establish a regular air service in Mariupol before the war.
On May 12, 1936, the airport organized the riding of Stakhanovtsi on ‘Steel-3’ plane.
In 1967, the construction of the new ‘Mariupol’ airport began 5 km from the city. At its best times our airport carried up to 120 thousand passengers a year. It had from 30 to 40 flights a day, and in the summer, it was transported to 25 thousand passengers a month.

The creation of Mariupol port was a logical continuation of the rapid development of the industrial south in the 2nd half of the XIX century. The shallow water pier at the mouth of the Kalmius river did not meet the requirements for the development of the fleet, the mining and metallurgical industry of the Donetsk basin.
