Tejgaon Airport in Dhaka served as the country's sole international airport prior to the construction of Shahjalal International Airport. Following the transfer of civilian flights to the newly built Shahjalal International Airport in 1981, Tejgaon was taken under the control of the Bangladesh Air Force.

It is probable that Tejgaon Airport will be an important operational base for air relief operations (as it was during Cyclone Sidr emergency operations in 2007) for the Armed Forces Division and the Air Force and the other Bangladesh Defense Forces. The compound includes all necessary facilities (storage capacities, operational rooms, etc.) as well as significant areas for open storage and/or setting up Mobile Storage Units (MSU's).
