Yemelyanovo International Airport ( ) is a major airport in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia located 37 km northwest of Krasnoyarsk. It opened for operations in 1980. It is the main base of Aeroflot and S7 Airlines with large airliners and a separate military area. The main runway apron holds 47 aircraft. A smaller runway has its own terminal and meteorology office, and its apron holds 94 small aircraft. This is one of Siberia's airfields that can handle extra large-sized airliners such as the Airbus A380 and Antonov An-225.

In November 2007, it was announced that Lufthansa Cargo might switch its Asian refueling and distribution point from Astana, Kazakhstan to Yemelyanovo Airport, because Russia would no longer permit Lufthansa the use of its air space for their Europe to Asia flights unless they could sell fuel. In July 2008 Lufthansa stated that it would move its cargo logistics hub from Astana to Yemelyanovo once the airport was brought up to ICAO safety standards.
