Later years

The airport has undergone several extensions and improvements. The most important development and remodeling of the terminal took place in 1988 when the runway was extended. In 1989 a cargo terminal was added and in 1996 new facilities were built: warehouse, taxiways and the airport apron was reconstructed. Additionally the runway was improved and a new control tower was built.

With a capacity of 200,000 passengers per year, the current terminal covers 2,000 m2 (½ acre). A new terminal building covers 8000 m2 (2 acres), consisting of three buildings. Construction started on 8 November 2005, and it was inaugurated on 22 December 2007. With a total cost of six million dinars, it has a capacity of 500,000 passengers. A total budget of 25 million dinars was also devoted to the airport to give it a total facelift (control tower, runway and parking).

From 2011 the airport was the main hub and headquarters for Syphax Airlines up until 2015.[4]
