Aden Abdulle International Airport is the former Mogadishu International Airport; it is an international airport serving Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. It is named after Aden Abdullah Osman Daar, the first President of Somalia. Originally a modest sized airport, the facility grew considerably in size in the post-independence period after numerous successive renovation projects.
With the outbreak of the civil war in 1991, flight services at Aden Abdulle International airport continued experiencing routine disruptions. However, with the minimal security improvement in Mogadishu during the years 2010-2011, a large-scale rehabilitation of the ground’s infrastructure and services has resumed.
By early 2013, the airport had restored most of its facilities and introduced several new features, with further upgrades in the works.

Security

Safety and security is a priority for the Somali Civil Aviation and Meteorology Authority. When travelling by plane you will be required to go through Passenger Security Screening for a security check. This security check is related to what you are allowed to take with you on board. This is to ensure that you are not carrying any potentially dangerous substances or items that could pose a risk to the passengers and crew or to the security and safety of the aircraft. Mogadishu Aden Abdulle International Airport recommends arrival at the airport at least 2 hours before scheduled flight departure. Passengers are advised to carry ONE piece of hand luggage. Sharp objects should be removed from carry-on luggage and placed in checked-in luggage. Security is provided by AMISOM together with private company and Somali Police.
