At that time there was an air control dispatchers point at the aerodrome and 40 - 45 employees worked in the airport. The aerodrome was used by aircraft AN-24, AN-2, YAK-40, MI-2. The flight range was small and there were only two scheduled flights Ventspils - Riga and Ventspils - Leningrad (now St. Petersburg).
