Kandahar Airport Facts

This is more commonly referred to as the Kandahar Airfield and is located exactly 16 kilometres in the south east of the Kandahar city in Afghanistan. The airport was originally built by the United States in the year 1960 and intended to use is as a US military base to defend itself from war with the USSR. The Kandahar international airport was mainly meant for defence purposes and has got hit during the soviet war in Afghanistan. Only in 2007, the airport was rebuilt and has been in use for both military and civil purposes and has then been maintained by the NATO. The airport has a single concrete paved runway and is about 10, 498 feet long.

Arrival and departure

Not many flights operate through this airport base as it is used mainly for military and defence purposes, it is also difficult to locate the airport and the runway during the day time owing to the lack of contrast with the ground as Kandahar is a place of dust and haze. But landing during night time is very well attempted as the runways are beautifully lit and the airport itself is away from busy regions. Many domestic flights operating within Afghanistan do use Kandahar international airport. Asphalt runway is very apt and suitable for light weight business jets and turboprop aircraft. International flights also operate across the airport mainly from Dubai, Pakistan, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia.
