Tashkent International Airport to Unveil State-of-the-Art Cargo Terminal, Bolstering Uzbekistan’s Aviation Sector

Tashkent International Airport is set to witness the construction of a cutting-edge new cargo terminal, poised to revolutionize the airport’s cargo handling capabilities.

With a staggering throughput capacity of 120,000 tons annually, the new cargo terminal is a strategic move to meet the burgeoning demands of the aviation sector. Spanning an expansive 5.2 hectares, this ambitious endeavor will mark a significant addition to the airport’s infrastructure, promising enhanced efficiency and service excellence.

The project will unfold in two distinct phases, each meticulously designed to cater to the evolving needs of the industry. In the initial phase, scheduled for completion by the end of this year, a state-of-the-art cargo terminal spanning 8,000 square meters will be operationalized. This phase will feature specialized refrigeration and freezing chambers, covering 500 square meters, to accommodate cargo requiring precise temperature controls. Additionally, a modern administrative building spread across 3,000 square meters will be constructed to provide a conducive environment for staff and representatives of importing and exporting companies.

The subsequent phase, slated for completion by the end of 2025, will witness the construction of a larger cargo warehouse spanning an impressive 12,000 square meters. This expansion will include the installation of cutting-edge refrigeration and freezing rooms, covering a total area of 1,000 square meters and equipped to handle diverse temperature requirements.

Uzbekistan Airports Cargo has underscored the imperative nature of this project, citing the outdated infrastructure of the current cargo terminal, which comprises approximately 20 small and medium-sized warehouses and administrative premises dating back to the late 20th century. Despite its existing throughput capacity of 30,000 tons per year, the terminal is projected to handle a staggering 67,000 tons of cargo and mail in 2024, highlighting the urgent need for modernization and expansion.

Moreover, the new cargo terminal will boast state-of-the-art facilities and equipment aimed at optimizing cargo handling processes and ensuring compliance with international standards of service delivery. This visionary initiative is poised to elevate Tashkent International Airport’s standing as a key player in the global aviation landscape, fostering growth and innovation in the region.
