Sebha International Airport is an airport in Sabha, southern Libya - (IATA: SEB, ICAO: HLLS).

Plans[edit]

The airport underwent expansion in the 1970s to make it into an international airport.[1] A LD600 million contract has been signed (May 20, 2008) with a joint venture comprising Lebanon's CCC and a new Libyan investment and development company for a new passenger terminal at Sabha Airport. It will have a capacity of 3 million passengers, and, like the new terminals at Tripoli International and Benina International, will be designed by Aéroports de Paris Engineering.[2]

In March 2017, it was announced that the airport had reopened to commercial traffic after closing in 2014 due to the war in the country[3]
