About Jalalabad Airport

Jalalabad Airport (Pashto: د جلال اباد هوايي ډګر; IATA: JAA, ICAO: OAJL), also known as Nangarhar Airport, is located next to the Kabul–Jalalabad Road, about 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of Jalalabad, which is the capital of Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan. It is a domestic airport under the country's Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (MoTCA), and serves the population of not only Nangarhar but also neighboring Kunar, Nuristan and Laghman provinces. It is also used by the Ministry of Defense for military purposes. Security in and around the airport is provided by the Afghan National Security Forces.

Situated at an elevation of 1,840 feet (561 m) above sea level, Jalalabad Airport has one asphalt runway measuring around 7,260 by 140 feet (2,213 m × 43 m). It also has at least 18 helipads, a number of hangars and buildings used for military purposes. The other closest major public Afghan airports to Jalalabad are the Kabul International Airport in neighboring Kabul Province to the west and Khost Airport in Khost Province to the south.

Jalalabad Airport was used in the past by the United States Armed Forces and civilian contractors. They operated out of Forward Operating Base Fenty. Members of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and later Resolute Support Mission (RSM) also used the airport in the past.
