In 1941, the British government of India had built military airstrips at Tejgaon, north of Dhaka, during the World War II, for operating warplanes towards the war fields of Kohima (Assam) and Burmese war theatres. Another landing strip further north at Kurmitola (Balurghat) was also made. After partition in 1947, Tejgaon had the first civil airport in East Pakistan, now Bangladesh. To cope with the increase in air traffic, a new airport was constructed on the Kurmitola airstrip near Uttora, 19 km north of Dhaka. The new airport started operation in 1981 and was named after Bangladesh's former President ZIA-ur Rahman. Since 1992, the airport terminal area saw rapid expansion in phases with addition of boarding bridges and equipments. A multi-storey car park with 500 cars was also built. With a total area of 1300 acres, Shah Jalal international Airport  is nation’s biggest. More than 16 international airlines use this airport. The airport handles half a million passengers and 98,000 million tons cargo annually. Aviation infrastructure is developed and maintained by the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB). It is the home base and hub of state-run Biman Bangladesh Airlines and private company GMG Airlines Bangladesh. Shah Jalal International Airport’s terminal building is equipped with most modern facilities and has an impressive architecture.
