A new airport is being built according to international standards and modern construction technologies in 16 km from Turkestan. Turkestan international airport which is being built by the Turkish company YDA Group will be put into operation by the end of the year. Currently 102 special equipment investors and more than 300 builders work at the construction site.

Governor of the region Umirzak Shukeyev checked the construction of an international airport and a highway on it. To increase the tourist potential in the region, a special program has been developed and it is planned to increase the number of tourists to 5 million by 2025. For this purpose, it is planned to open a direct plane from Turkestan to Mecca once every two days from the international airport. This is stated during the days in Moscow of the Turkestan region in December last year.

Terminals, a runway and other facilities will be built at the 900-hectare airport. The airport terminal can handle about 3 million passengers a year. The total length of highways at the airport is 16.3 km.
