The airport was developed in the latter half of the 1990s: as a result of the Armenian blockade of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, aviation became the only means of communication with the outside world. For this reason, Heydar Aliyev, who was the chairman of the Supreme Assembly (parliament) of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic at the time, initiated reconstruction of the Nakhchivan airport’s runway in 1992. The work was carried out by local specialists and completed in a short period of time. Following extension of the runway, the airport started accommodating Tupolev Tu-154 aircraft.
