Angads Airport (مطار وجدة أنجاد) (IATA: OUD, ICAO: GMFO) is an airport serving Oujda, a city in the Oriental region in Morocco. Also known as Oujda Angads Airport, it is located about 12 kilometres (7 mi) north of Oujda and about 600 kilometres (373 mi) northeast of Casablanca, near the Algerian border.

History

During World War II, the airport was used as a military airfield by the United States Army Air Forces Twelfth Air Force during the North African campaign. It was called Oujda Airfield Known units assigned were:

  • HQ 5th Bombardment Wing, December 1942-January 1943
  • HQ 52d Troop Carrier Wing, 8 May-July 1943
  • 68th Reconnaissance Group, November 1942-24 March 1943, (Various photo-reconnaissance aircraft)
  • 313th Troop Carrier Group, 9 May-16 June 1943, C-47 Skytrain

  • 350th Fighter Group, 6 January-14 February 1943, P-39/P-400 Aircobra

After the Americans moved out their active units in mid-1943, the airport was used as a stopover and landing field for Air Transport Command aircraft on the Caablanca-Algiers transport route. When the war ended, control of the airfield was returned to civil authorities.
