Saidu Sharif Airport (IATA: SDT, ICAO: OPSS) is an airport in Pakistan. It is situated near the Swat River and between villages of Dherai and Kanju in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

The airport was built in 1978, and two flights took place daily to Peshawar and Islamabad before the airport was shut down during First Battle of Swat in 2007.[1][2]

The airport was reopened in 2012.[1]

Many visitors that come to the valley of Swat and to the Malam Jabba ski resort in summers fly to Swat through this airport.
