Kufra Airport



Kufra Airport is an airport in Kufra, Libya (IATA: AKF, ICAO: HLKF).

History

Kufra Airport began as Buma Airfield, built in the 1930s as a minor facility. In early World War II, it provided an air link to Italian East Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Italian Somaliland). It was captured by Free French units under General Leclerc on 1 March 1941 along with Kufra Oasis.

On August 26, 2008, a hijacked Sudanese Boeing 737 landed at Kufra Airport after having departed at Nyala Airport, Darfur, with destination Khartoum. Earlier, Egyptian authorities had refused the plane to land in their national capital, Cairo.
