Sebha International Airport (IATA: SEB, ICAO: HLLS) is an airport serving Sabha, capital of the Sabha District of Libya. The airport is 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) southeast of the city.

The Sebha non-directional beacon (Ident: SEB) is located 2.2 nautical miles (4.1 km) north of the airport. The Sebha VOR-DME (Ident: SEB) is located on the field.[4][5]

The airport shares its runway with Sabha Airbase, which has operations on the southwest side of the airport.

Plans[edit]

The airport underwent expansion in the 1970s to make it into an international airport.[6]

A LD600 million contract was signed (20 May 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 would have a capacity of 3 million passengers, and, like the new terminals at Tripoli International and Benina International, be designed by Aéroports de Paris Engineering.[7] This development was not completed due to the Libyan Civil War.[8]

In March 2017, it was announced that the airport had reopened to commercial traffic after closing in 2014 due to the continuing civil war.[9]
