Sabha International Airport is a public airport near Sabha, the capital city of the Sabha District, in the southwestern region of the North African nation of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. This is the centre of a remarkable agricultural industry in the desert which is spread along a plain sand area next to a picturesque Lake Gaberoun surrounded by trees with dates, and which has made this destination increasingly popular with the international tourists flocking here every season.
Situated at an elevation of 1,427 feet above mean sea level, this newly refurbished marvelous aviation facility is owned and operated by the Civil Aviation and Meteorology Bureau of Libya. There are two asphalt surfaced runways at this airport measuring 11,778 feet and 5,596 feet ably catering to all flight movements to and from the Sabha International Airport. A US$470 million development plan that has recently been concluded for this international airport put this facility in league with the other leading Tripoli and Benina International airports of this country. Up-gradation changes at this facility include the construction of a new state-of-the-art 55,000 square meter passenger terminal with a capacity to serve over 3 million passengers each year.
Designed by the Aeroports de Paris Engineering, this new terminal is a charming structure complete with all passenger convenience facilities compatible with standard international aviation industry norms. Along with spacious short and long term parking facilities created at this new terminal, private taxis and car rental services are readily available for visitors fulfilling the need for comfortable local transportation. Moreover, some hotels around Sabha International Airport are also offering complementary hotel shuttle services for their guests seeking convenient and comfortable hotel accommodation options.
