Dushanbe International Airport’s cargo terminal to be commissioned in June 2018

The cargo terminal of the Dushanbe International Airport (DIA), Tajikistan, is expected to be commissioned in June 2018.

The airport informed that Mr. Eichiro Cho, Director General of the Financial Cooperation and Implementation Department of the JICA headquarters, familiarized himself with the progress of the construction of the Dushanbe International Airport’s cargo terminal.

Mr. Eichiro Cho highly appreciated the quality of the construction works and thanked the management of Dushanbe International Airport OJSC for fruitful cooperation.

It should be noted that a Grant Agreement named as ‘Improvement of the Dushanbe International Airport’ was signed between the Government of Tajikistan and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) earlier.

In accordance with this Agreement, the Government of Japan has provided a grant of 1 billion 914 million yen (US $ 17.5 million) to build a cargo terminal, acquire and install ILS and PALS navigation systems, and to purchase equipment for cargo handling.

Following the results of the international tender, Adad Valia Corporation was selected as the main supplier of ILS and PALS systems, which ensure the exact landing of aircraft at the airfield in Dushanbe.

These systems and equipment for handling cargos were purchased in Norway, Germany, Belgium and Japan. In the first half of 2017, specialists of the international company ADDED VALUE CORPORATION started their work on the project aimed to supply equipment for the terminal, the instrument landing system (ILS) and precision approach and landing system (PALS) for the runway.

The Dushanbe International Airport OJSC and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) decided to complete the Cargo Terminal Construction Project in two phases. The first phase of work is to build the cargo terminal and the second phase is to connect the terminal to the power source and improve the adjacent territory.
