The history of the airport dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. It was upgraded and developed over the years until 1999 when the new current terminal was inaugurated.
In January 2013 the facility closed due to the Syrian Civil War, but after Syrian Army advances were made in the area, the airport re-opened on 22 January 2014, welcoming its first civilian flight in more than 1 year (flights were suspended in December 2012), carrying foreign journalists to the city.
Aleppo International Airport has a modern terminal which combines a modern and Islamic architecture. The total area is 38,000 square meters over four floors. The airport capacity is 1.7 million passengers a year.
