History of Ashgabat Airport during and after the USSR

The history of Turkmenistan’s civil aircraft dates back to 1927, when the first airline connecting Chardzhou to Tashauz via Tourtkul and Novo-Urgench was opened. The first airport in Ashgabat was built in 1932, and this port was used during Soviet times only to service flights within the USSR.

After the collapse of the USSR, the first modern airport terminal in Independent Turkmenistan was opened in 1994. In 2012, the Turkmen government authorized an international tender for the reconstruction of the airport in Ashgabat to be named “Oguz Khan”. Polimeks, a Turkish construction company operating in Turkmenistan since the late 1990s, won the tender. The new airport was opened on September 17, 2016 by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow.

The new airport, which has a very unusual terminal design in the shape of a hawk, covers an area of 350.000 m2. The airport has a passenger terminal, a VIP terminal, a cargo terminal with an annual cargo handling capacity of 200.000 tons, a new air traffic control tower, a maintenance hangar for three narrow-body aircraft, new fueling stations, food service, fire station, flight simulation, repair and maintenance buildings at the airport, parking space for 3.000 vehicles, a civil aviation school and a medical center.
