Astana International Airport (IATA: TSE, ICAO: UACC) is an international airport in Kazakhstan located 14 km (9 mi) outside of the capital Astana.

History

The airport traces its history to 1931 when Astana's first airfield was constructed. Airport infrastructure has been continuously upgraded, making it possible to accept heavy aircraft by 1948, and starting 24-hour operation in 1956.

Following the transfer of the country capital to Astana in 1997, the airport underwent a series of major reconstructions which brought it up to international standards. A new passenger terminal designed by the late Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa was officially opened in February 2005.

Currently Astana Airport accepts all types of aircraft without limitation of take-off weight. It handled 834,299 passengers and 2,587 metric tonnes of cargo in 2006. During 2007, traffic increased 40 percent to 1,170,919 passengers.
