Zyryanka Airport is the main airport that serves the locality of Zyryanka, Verkhnekolymsky District in the Sakha Republic of Russia. When it cannot be used, the Zyryanka West Airport, which is located 8km (5.0 mi) west of Zyryanka, complements it (although this airport is barely used). Yakutia Airlines, which flies to and from Yakutsk, is the only air carrier that operates both at Zyryanka Airport and Zyryanka West Airport.
Zyryanka is an urban locality, a settlement, and the administrative centre of Verkhnekolymsky District in the Sakha Republic, Russia. It is located on the left bank of the Kolyma River. As of 2010, it has a population of 3,170. Zyryanka was founded in 1930 following the development of coal deposits, which made coal mining an important aspect of the region’s economy. It was granted its urban-type settlement status in 1940 and became home to the OAO "Kolyma shipping company", which deals in coal transportation and importation of industrial goods and foodstuffs. The settlement has a subarctic climate (Köppen climate classification Dfc), which means it experiences extremely cold winters and mild summers. Precipitation is quite low and is somewhat higher in summer compared to the rest of the year.
