Introduction of Aden International Airport
Aden International Airport is an international airport in Aden, Yemen (IATA code: ADE, ICAO code: OYAA). The airport is located 6km away from the centre of Aden, Yemen. It offers direct connectivity between Aden and other countries in the region.
A new terminal was opened in 1985 and, by 1996, the airport became Yemen’s second largest airport after Sana’a International Airport. The airport was closed following the outbreak of the Yemeni Civil War in early 2015. It was re-opened for civilian air traffic in late 2015, with limited commercial services. The proposed expansion aims to increase the airport’s passenger and flight handling capacity. Aden International Airport currently operates six regional flights a week.
