Basrah airport is the second largest Iraq airports after the Baghdad International airport. It was built in the 1960s and then developed in the 1980s by the Iraqi Government department State Organisation for Roads and Bridges (SORB) as a gateway to the only port in Iraq.

The airport is located approximately 10.5 kilometres (6.5 miles) from the Basrah city centre. The overall airport property encompasses approximately 2300 hectares (5687 acres) and is full enclosed by a chain link security fence topped with three strands of barbed wire. (All the concrete posts are deteriorating at the ground line due to chemical attack by the salt-laden soils.) The aerodrome reference elevation is 3 m (11 ft) and the entire airport is situated on former marshlands. Elevations range from about 3 m to 8 m above mean sea level throughout the site and natural drainage is poor in the unpaved areas.

Runways

The runway is in excellent condition. The surface condition is virtually “as new” with little or no rubber deposits on the Runway 14 and 32 touchdown zones.  It would allow unrestricted use by B747 types, A340-200, AN 124 and other large civilian and military transports such as the C-17. (Some ACNs for aircraft such as the B777-300 and other new generation aircraft exceed the PCN value noted above, but intermittent use could still be allowed and the pavement monitored for any distress). In any case there is no existing pavement distress, and no upgrades or repairs are required for commercial or military airport operations.
