The work on the re-planning of the international flight sector was completed – the division of the halls of the VIP-hall and the hall of official delegations, which allowed increasing the carrying capacity from 450 passengers per hour up to 600 passengers per hour.

A new arrival hall was put into operation, which was expanded at the expense of the existing building of the airport terminal building, which is part of the Osh International Airport. So, before the construction began, the area of ​​the arrivals hall was 660 sq. m., and after the completion of the construction works, the total area of ​​the arrival hall is 2,000 sq. m. The new arrival hall will allow you to simultaneously take 3-4 flights. The capacity of the air terminal building, taking into account the expansion, is 550-600 passengers per hour. Also, in order to promptly and qualitatively service passengers of international flights, five border control cabins are installed in the arrival hall. To speed up the process of obtaining luggage by passengers, additional equipment of the baggage claim system has been installed in the baggage claiming room. Currently, there are three of them. Within the framework of the implementation of the Taza Coom National Program for Digital Transformation of the Kyrgyz Republic, two sets of equipment of the Electronic Gates (E-gate) system are installed in the new arrival hall.

So, in 2012, the Osh International Airport serviced 810,285 passengers, in 2017 – 1,358,937 passengers. Thus, the growth in passenger turnover amounted 59.6%, as compared to 2012.
