Zhukovsky Airport (IATA: ZIA, ICAO: UUBW), also known as Ramenskoye Airport or Zhukovsky Airfield (Russian: Аэропорт Раменское, Аэропорт Жуковский), is Moscow’s fourth international airport. It is located in Moscow Oblast, Russia 40 km southeast of central Moscow, in the town of Zhukovsky, a few kilometers southeast of the old Bykovo Airport. It was originally named after the nearby town of Ramenskoye; but in 2016 the airport was officially named after the town of Zhukovsky, in which it is geographically situated. The town of Zhukovsky, in turn, was been named after a pioneer of modern aerodynamics research, Nikolay Yegorovich Zhukovsky.
The airfield has served as a major aircraft testing facility since the Cold War years, with most of the major Russian OKBs having facilities there. It is also now used by the Ministry of Emergency Situations and cargo carriers. It was also used as a test site for the Soviet Buran Spacecraft.
The opening ceremony of the Zhukovsky Airport was held on 30 May 2016 and the first commercial passenger flights were expected to begin on 20 June 2016.
The airfield is a part of the Gromov Flight Research Institute and hosts the biennial MAKS Airshow. The airport is also home to the world’s second longest public-use runway, at 5,402 m (17,723 ft).
