Bangladesh Shah Amanat International Airport

 

Shah Amanat International Airport is located in the city of Chittagong.
Chittagong is the second largest city1 in Bangladesh next to Dhaka. The district has Chittagong Port, which has the largest cargo volume in Bangladesh, and has succeeded in developing its economy, particularly within its Export Processing Zone (EPZ).
The airport is surrounded by the sea on one side and the river on the other. It has poor access to the city of Chittagong. The airport has a single terminal for arrival and departure sections with separate entrances.
All facilities of the Chittagong Airport were renewed in March 2001.
Chittagong Airport’s ability to function as an alternative airport will depend on the construction of facilities near the airport and development of roads into Chittagong City.
The airport does not have a separate cargo terminal. Cargo handling is undertaken at the passenger terminal.
