Aerodrom Đakovica AMIKO
Aeroporti i Gjakovës AMIKO
|IATA: none – ICAO:
|Elevation AMSL||1,370 ft / 418 m|
Following the 1999 Kosovo War, the airfield has been expanded and modernized by the Kosovo Force (KFOR) and is used mainly for military and humanitarian flights. Since the airfield lies in the west of Kosovo, a sector under the command of Italian forces, the airport is operated and maintained by the Italian KFOR troops.
Đakovica Airfield is to be turned into a civilian airport and use it as an alternative to Pristina International Airport in bad weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances. However, since the airport is operated by KFOR this is unlikely to happen until the control over the airfield is handed over to the local authorities.
