Ubon Ratchathani Airport (IATA: UBP, ICAO: VTUU) is near the city of Ubon Ratchathani, in Ubon Ratchathani Province, Northeastern Thailand. It currently serves as both a commercial airport and as a Royal Thai Air Force base.
After the Vietnam War the facility became[when?] an international civilian airport, with direct flights to Vietnam. These flights proved unprofitable, and while the international signage is still in place, only domestic flights have operated for a number of years.
