The airport underwent expansion in the 1970s to make it into an international airport. 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.
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
