Airfreight operations are set to grow at Uzbekistan’s Tashkent International Airport with the development of a new terminal able to handle about 120,000 tons of cargo per year.

The cargo terminal’s design has already been completed and now the terminal will be built in two stages on an area totalling ​​5.2 ha, according to management company, Uzbekistan Airports.

In the first phase, a cargo terminal with a total area of ​​8,000 sq m will be built and put into operation by the end of this year. This will include 500 sq m freezers for perishable and pharma-related cargo.

A 3,000 sq m administrative building will also be built for the employees and representatives of import and export companies.

In the second stage, due to be completed by the end of 2025, a new cargo warehouse with an area of ​​12,000 sq m will be built. This is planned to include modern cooling and freezing rooms with different temperature conditions.

“At present, the cargo terminal, built in 1994-2000, consists of about 20 outdated small and medium-sized warehouses and administrative buildings with a total area of ​​about 3 ha,” said Uzbekistan Airports Cargo.

“The capacity of the cargo terminal is currently 30,000 tons per year. However, in 2024, approximately 67,000 tons of cargo and mail are expected. All this indicates the need to expand and modernise the cargo terminal. The new terminal will be equipped with modern equipment, which will reduce cargo handling time and provide quality service to air carriers in accordance with generally recognized international standards.”
