Dushanbe International Airport (IATA: DYU, ICAO: UTDD) is an airport in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan. It is the a main hub for Somon Air and was the home base for now defunct Tajik Air, which also had its head office on the property.
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. France provided Tajikistan a long-term, low-interest EUR20 million loan. Tajikistan's own contribution was EUR19 million.
