Airport Overview

basra airport

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Basrah International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A great little airport with courteous service and clean, comfortable facilities. Dining and shopping options are very limited.
  • A crazy amount of security checkpoints, starting with the moment you are on airport property. Even your taxi will go through several security checkpoints! After all of that, the check-in and security checkpoint procedures seem to be a breeze!
  • WiFi is provided by the airport. See WiFi in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • As of May 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
