Airport Overview

Basra International Airport was established in the 1960s as a public/military airport in Iraq, and later in the 1980s developed as a gateway to Iraq's only port by the Iraqi government's State Organization for Roads and Bridges (SORB). It's considered the fourth largest airport in Iraq in terms of passenger numbers, according to air transport statistics from the Iraqi Ministry of Planning. The airport receives dozens of flights from around the world from which aircraft take off to around the world. Basra International Airport is witnessing increased activity from incoming flights and departures due to the large economic and investment movement in Basra. The airport is around 10.5 kilometres (6.5 miles) from the city centre of Basra. The reference elevation of the airfield is 3 meters (11 feet), and the entire airport is built on old marshlands. The airport can accommodate various types of planes. Elevations range from around 3 m - 8 m above sea level across the site, and natural drainage is poor in the unpaved areas.
