The falcon of Ashgabat

The stunning Ashgabat International Airport will be the first stop for visitors to the 5th Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games. This extraordinary terminal design has some serious ‘wow’ factor. 
The structure has been recognised by the World Record Academy, as the ‘Largest Bird Shaped Building’, and the airport itself has a capacity to handle 1,600 passengers per hour. 

Visiting athletes, coaches, officials and sports fans will be warmly welcomed here by many of the Ashgabat 2017 First Star volunteer team.  

The airport was built by Turkish construction company Polimeks and was opened to the public on 17 September, 2016, by the Esteemed President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
