Tarinkot Airport (IATA: TIIICAO: OATN) is a domestic airport located in southeastern Afghanistan, one mile (2 km) south of Tarinkot, the capital city of the province of Urozgan. It is 60 miles (97 km) north of Kandahar, and 205 miles (330 km) south-southwest of the Afghan capital of Kabul.[1] It was built by the Afghan government to serve the population of Urozgan Province and neighboring Daykundi Province, which was partitioned in 2004.

In addition to the Afghan Air Force and Afghan National Police, the U.S military and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) also have presence. Camp Holland is located next to Tarinkot Airport, which serves as an important supply point for this camp.

On 29 June 2009, Kam Air started flying between Kabul and Tarinkot three times a week. The services will be financially supported by the Dutch government as a way to contribute to the development of the Uruzgan region. The flights are conducted with an Boeing 737 before suspended.
