Description: Manas, the international airport at Bishkek (named after the mythical national hero), was modernised in 1988 to make it one of the most modern commercial airport in Central Asia. Manas International Airport has about five commercial flights per day.
Manas has a 13,800-foot long runway, built for Soviet bombers. There is room for four C-17 or C-5 cargo planes to park along the taxiway. The base lies about 1,500 kilometres from Kandahar, a three-hour flight.
The Kyrgyz government is currently embroiled in a dispute with the Pentagon over payment for past and future use of the Manas air base, which has become an important refuelling port for U.S. aircraft flying in Afghanistan since 2001.
