HistoryEdit

In 1924 the first airport was built in the country, in the city currently known as Dushanbe. In November 1929 a new airport was built to serve Stalinabad (past name of Dushanbe). In 1964 the current airport complex was put into operation. Over the years the airport has been reconstructed several times.

A new French-built terminal, which can serve 1.5 million passengers a year, was opened on 3 September 2014.[2][3] France provided Tajikistan a long-term, low-interest €20 million loan. Tajikistan's own contribution was €19 million.[4]
