Toktogul Airport started its operations in the 1950s to serve the transportation needs of the engineers of the nearby Toktogul Hydroelectric Power Plant. The current runway was built in the 1970s. The airport has no terminal, and has no instrument landing facilities and operates only during daylight hours.
Until the 1990s, the airport had flights to Jalal-Abad (Jalal-Abad—Toktogul—Talas), Osh (Osh—Jalal-Abad—Toktogul—Talas) and Talas (Talas—Toktogul—Jalal-Abad).
Transport in Kyrgyzstan is severely constrained by the country's alpine topography. Roads have to snake up steep valleys, cross passes of 3,000 m (9,843 ft) altitude and more, and are subject to frequent mud slides and snow avalanches. Winter travel is close to impossible in many of the more remote and high-altitude regions. Additional problems are because many roads and railway lines built during the Soviet period are today intersected by international boundaries, requiring time-consuming border formalities to cross where they are not completely closed. The horse is still a much used transport option, especially in rural and inaccessible areas, as it does not depend on imported fuel.
