Dushanbe, Tajikistan DYU/UTDD

Dushanbe, Tajikistan


The airport lies in an E/W river valley with terrain rising steeply to the N and S. The airport is situated on the N bank of the river in the S outskirts of the city. The 4,000ft contour lies just 3nm N and 6nm to the S.


Expect radar vectors to final approach. ATC may expect the aircraft to make its own turn onto final approach and may not issue a clearance. Clearance to land is given once the crew has confirmed that the landing gear is down.

Caution: Approaches normally flown on QFE at this airport. Request an approach on QNH.


The threshold of RWY 27 is considerably inset because of local terrain.
Precision approach to RWY 09 only.
