Sochi International

Sochi, Russia

About The Airport

Located on Russia's Black Sea coast, Sochi International Airport is one of the busiest in the country. As it was the main gateway to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, the airport was rebuilt between 2007 and 2010 in order to modernize its facilities. Though the city is well-known for its ski resorts and winter sports, it's also popular with fair-weather tourists for its many beaches, forests and nature reserves.


Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the terminal for those with a Russian SIM card. Visit one of our Priority Pass lounges for dedicated Wi-Fi access.
