QIA is located 10 km east and slightly north of the city center of Kurgantyube (Qurghonteppa in Tajik language) the administrative center of Kurgantyube province with a population of about 2 million. 
In terms of passenger volumes the airport ranks fourth among Tajikistan’s four international airports. 
There were about 120,000 arrivals and departures in 2013.  
A single local company based in Qurghonteppa since 2007, East Airlines, operates 9 or 10 weekly flights to four cities in Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg and Novosibirsk as well as to Shymkent, Kazakhstan and to Bishkek. The company has two older Boeing 737s and two Airbus 320s. 
A semi-autonomous company took over operations of the airport in March 2013, at the time resurfacing and a small extension of the airport runway to 2250 meters was completed. 
The company has the ability to set its own prices for airport landing and other services and offers rates significantly lower than those of Dushanbe International. 
The airport has a goal to add two or three more airlines to increase its weekly flight total to 20 by the end of 2014.  
Air navigation charges are standard for all airports in the country as shown in the table under 2.0 Aviation. 
There is a single company in Tajikistan that provides jet fuel to all airports under a fixed price system.  
There is space available within the building or least to private companies and organizations. 
Customs and immigration offices are located within the airport terminal building. 
UNHAS has used Qurghonteppa sporadically including regular flights in 2003-004 from Kabul to Kunduz and then to Qurghonteppa with further transfer of passengers by bus to Dushanbe.

Fuel Services Charges 

There is a single company in Tajikistan supplying aviation fuel to the four international airports. Prices are higher than in nearby countries like Kazakhstan. As of February 2014, it was anticipated that prices for Jet A-1 could drop by $200 per ton if the company passed on to airlines the savings made through Russia’s lifting of export duties on fuel in 2013.
