Dera Ismail Khan Airport or D. I. Khan Airport (IATA: DSK, ICAO: OPDI) is situated 10 km away from the city centre of Dera Ismail Khan, a city in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. The airport is the only airport, beside Bannu airport, which connects the southern districts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa with other parts of the country.

History

Dera Ismail Khan airport was closed following the start of the Afgan-US war in 2001 for unspecified reasons. After a total of six years the airport was decided to reopen after a delegation of the district visited Islamabad. The reopening was stated to cost around Rs4 million, which was spent on repairing the runway and on the renovation and repair of the terminal building. Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) was the sole operator at the airport, providing feeder services between Peshawar, Zhob, Multan, Lahore and Islamabad using Fokker F-27 aircraft. With the reopening plans, the CAA has decided to up-grade the airport which would eventually facilitate the initiation of international flights for the people of the area working abroad and in the business community. The first flight is expected to be launched on the 27 October 2008 to Islamabad via Peshawar.
