The airport is located 10 miles (16 km) southeast of the Asalouyeh Airport (IATA: YEH, ICAO: OIBI). The airport has been operating since 2005 and, though small, enjoys one of the most modern passenger terminal buildings recently built in the region. There are frequent scheduled and charter passenger flights every day operated by Mahan Air, Kish Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Taban Air, Saha Air Lines (with service on the last passenger Boeing 707s in the world) and Caspian Airlines to cities across Iran, including Tehran, Mashhad, Isfahan, Shiraz, Tabriz, Ahwaz, Rasht, Kish Island and Kermanshah, with weekly international flights to Dubai, operated by Mahan Air.
A development phase for the airport has been designed and approved by officials. The project will cost about US$62 million and include a new four-kilometer runway and a new 14,000 square-meter terminal. The latter will have seven air-bridges and be connected to the current terminal by a corridor. On completion of the project, the international and domestic terminals will be separate, although both will use the air-bridges. Project studies and engineering have been finished and execution activities are in preparation.
