Mihail Kogalniceanu Airport (IATA: CND, ICAO: LRCK) is situated in south-east Romania, in the commune of Mihail Kogalniceanu, at 26 km NW of Constanta. It is the main airport of Dobrogea region and it provides access to the Constanta County, the Constanta city port and Black Sea Romanian resorts. The airport's maximum traffic capacity was reached in 1979, when Romanian Riviera reached the highest number of foreign tourists; at that time CND served 778,766 passengers. It has been a US Military Forces base since 1999, which has recently been allegedly exposed as the site of clandestine CIA interrogations.

Military uses

The airport was home of the former Romanian Air Force 57th Air Base, which was the only unit operating the Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter aircraft. The base was disbanded in April 2004 and all the 18 MiG-29s remain in open storage at the airport. It has been used by the United States Military since 1999. In 2003, it became one of four Romanian military facilities that have been used by U.S. military forces as a staging area for the invasion of and ongoing counter-insurgency efforts in Iraq, operated by the 458th Air Expeditionary Group, and it is intended to become one of the main operating bases of U.S. Army Europe's Joint Task Force East, a rotating task force initially to be provided by the U.S. 2nd Cavalry Regiment, which will eventually grow to a brigade sized force.
