In the year 2012 Kurumoch International Airport successfully improved all its main business figures. The number of handled passengers during the last 12 months was 9% up.

In 2012 Samara Airport welcomed 1 890 483 passengers and experienced strong growth of 9% comparing with the previous year. Thereby the annual passenger flow of the airport is closely approaching the 2 million mark. Kurumoch Airport specialists are sure that the traffic figures could be higher but unfortunately the lack of terminal capacity is considered to be one of the main limiting factors for today.

The Greek carrier “Astra Airlines” officially integrated its flights to Thessaloniki; “Ak Bars Aero” connected Samara with Kazan and Sochi on a regular basis; “NordStar Airlines” launched regular flights to Norilsk and Rostov. The weekly frequency of flights between Samara and Ekaterinburg increased from 7 to 10 because of “RusLain” airline which now joined “Ural Airlines” and “UTair” already serving this regular destination. Moreover two biggest Russian airlines “Aeroflot” and “S7 Airlines” offered more flights on the popular Samara-Moscow route. So the total number of flights to the Russian capital is now amounts to 12 departures per day. In 2012 Kurumoch Airport also enriched the choice of leisure destinations for Samara tourists by adding such new cities as Aqaba (Jordan), Sharjah (UAE) and Burgas (Bulgaria).
 
Other figures of the Airport business activity during the year 2012 have also increased recently. Kurumoch Airport saw 21 096 aircraft movements, recording a 5% growth when compared with the year 2011. The MTOW was up 3 percentage points over the year-ago period and amounted to 1 362 188 tones. Air cargo and mail demand was significantly stronger by 11% (4 746 tones) compared to the previous year.
 
Such airlines as "UTair", "Aeroflot - Russian Airlines", “Orenair”, “Ural Airlines” and “S7 Airlines" showed the most considerable increase in 2012.
