Tashkent Airport

Where is Tashkent Airport?  

Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and of Tashkent Province, is an ancient city, yet little architectural heritage remains due in large part to the 1966 earthquake.

The city is rich in Soviet-era monuments and significant Islamic sites though, and Tashkent holds the earliest written Qur'an.

Tashkent International Airport (IATA: TAS, ICAO: UTTT), or simply Tashkent Airport is located 12 kilometres (7.5 miles) from the centre of Tashkent City, in Tashkent Province, Uzbekistan.

Tashkent Airport serves more than 2 million passengers per year, and is Uzbekistan's busiest airport.

A new domestic terminal, Terminal 3, was opened in 2011, but the international terminal, Terminal 2, continues to operate at maximum capacity. There are plans to relocate Tashkent Airport by 2030, but that means continued massive delays for years to come.

TAS Airport is the primary hub of Uzbekistan Airways. Other airlines that fly to Tashkent Airport include Aeroflot, Air Astana, airBaltic, Asiana Airlines, Avia Traffic Company, China Southern Airlines, Czech Airlines, Iran Air, Korean Air, Kyrgyzstan Air Company, Tatarstan Airlines, Transaero Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Ural Airlines and UTair Aviation.
