Tiksi Aerodrome (IATA: IKS, ICAO: UEST) is located 1 km (0.6 mi) northeast of Tiksi, Russia and was built in the 1950s as a staging base for Soviet bombers to reach the United States (as the so-called 'bounce' airdrome). It is used regularly by Tupolev Tu-95 aircraft in military exercises, including one in 1999, in which bombers practice travelling to the Canadian arctic. Two airfields known as Tiksi North and Tiksi West no longer appear to exist, according to satellite imagery.

According to Farecompare.com, a total of 50 daily seats are flown into Tiksi Airport everyday. This equates a total capacity of 18,250 seats annually, however, with a rough industry average of a 70% load factor on the plane, it is safe to say that Tiksi Airport receives around 12,775 passengers a year. The only scheduled service to Tiksi is by Antonov An-24 turboprop airplane.
