From 1980 to 2014, the population of Dushanbe shot up from 500,000 to nearly 800,000. In addition, Tajiks are increasingly finding international work opportunities (nearly a million Tajiks work abroad). Accordingly, airports must adapt to increasing numbers of passengers if they are to contribute to continuous development. That is why a new terminal was needed at Dushanbe International Airport. This infrastructure meets current and future needs in this country undergoing rapid development.
