Airport Name: Hamid Karzai International Airport Airport Address: , Kabul, Afghanistan Main Airlines:
Hamid Karzai International Airport (; ; ) is located from the city center of Kabul in Afghanistan. It serves as one of the nation's main international airports and as one of the largest military bases, capable of housing over one hundred aircraft. It was previously named Kabul International Airport and locally as Khwaja Rawash Airport, though it continues to be officially known by some airlines by the latter name. The airport was given its new name in 2014 in honor of former President Hamid Karzai. The decision was made by the National Assembly of Afghanistan and the Cabinet of President Ashraf Ghani.
The airport has been expanded and modernized in the last decade. A new international terminal was added and the older terminal is now used for domestic flights. A number of military bases were also built around the airport, which are used by the United States Armed Forces and NATO's Resolute Support Mission (RS) (formerly International Security Assistance Force, ISAF). The Afghan Air Force also has a base there, while the Afghan National Police provide security inside the passenger terminals. As of June 2016 the most frequently serviced destination from the airport was Dubai-International with no fewer than four passenger airlines flying the route, some with multiple daily flights. * Source: Wikipedia
