Sukkur Airport (IATA: SKZICAO: OPSK) is a domestic airport situated about 8 km away from the city centre of Sukkur in the Sukkur District in the Sindh province of Pakistan. It is a medium-sized airport and caters mainly to the population of Sukkur, Khairpur and Rohri. It is the main alternate of Jinnah International Airport in Karachi with a distance of about 350 km/220 miles; well under an hour's flight time in turboprop aircraft.

Sukkur Airport ranks as the second main operational airport in Sindh, after Jinnah International Airport. The paved runway is about 2700 metres long. It also handles international flights especially in the time of emergencies and because of bad weather conditions.
