Tashkent International Airport (Uzbek: Toshkent Xalqaro Aeroporti – (IATA: TAS, ICAO: UTTT)) is the main international airport of Uzbekistan and the busiest airport in Central Asia. It is located 12 km (7.5 mi) from the center of Tashkent.
This ICAO Category II airport is the primary hub of Uzbekistan Airways, and is the largest international airport in Uzbekistan, and the busiest in Central Asia. The airport comprises two terminals: Terminal 2 receives international flights, Terminal 3 is for domestic traffic.
Terminal 2 was rebuilt in 2001, and is currently undergoing renovations.[when?] It has a capacity of 1000 passengers/hour and serves more than two million passengers per year. Other facilities include waiting lounges, CIP and VIP halls, restaurants and bars, currency exchange offices, duty-free shops, airlines ticket counters and sales offices, and a 24-hour pharmacy. The terminal operates at near maximum capacities; arriving passengers frequently spend an average of two hours completing customs and immigration formalities. Renovations in the departure area have eased congestion somewhat, but it is still recommended that passengers arrive two and a half hours prior to departure for international flights.
Terminal 3 opened in 2011 with a capacity of 400 passengers per hour. The two terminals are separated by the runway, requiring passengers transiting from international to domestic flights and vice versa to exit the airport in order to transfer between them.
The government of Uzbekistan is planning to relocate Tashkent Airport to a new site by 2030.
