Sir Ahmadu Bello International Airport (SABIA) (ICAO: DNBK) is an airport serving Birnin Kebbi in the Kebbi State of Nigeria. It is 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) east of Birnin Kebbi, along the Birnin Kebbi-Argungu road.

The runway was extended from its original 2,200 metres (7,200 ft) to 3,100 metres (10,200 ft) and had a new ramp and terminal built in 2013. The Birnin Kebbi VOR-DME (Ident: BIK) is located on the field.[3]

The airport started full operations in 2014, and since then Muslim pilgrims from Kebbi state were flown from SABIA to Jedda International Airport in Saudi Arabia. The airport also has scheduled and unscheduled domestic flights. The scheduled flights to Abuja were via Airpeace prior to Azman Air, which is currently the major airline operating from SABIA.[4][5]
