FEATURES OF TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE
The peculiarity of international transportation to Kyrgyzstan is greatly affected by the landscape of the country. Kyrgyzstan is a country ¾ the area of which is occupied by high mountain ranges. Therefore, there is only one single central Bishkek-Osh highway operating in the country. This means that even a slight change in road conditions can cause a delay in the load. It should be taken into account the fact that the country has no access to the sea, that is, there is no possibility of sea transportation.
The only reliable delivery option is air delivery. Air transportation has a number of significant advantages: it is the fastest method of delivery, safety and integrity of cargo during delivery, the ability to control cargo at all stages of the route. The airports that accept international freight transportation are Manas and Osh, they are in Bishkek.
