Services Contact Development Schedule

Osmani International Airport, Sylhet was built in 1944-1945, during the 2nd World War to check Japanese aggression from Burma. The airport was formerly known as Sylhet Civil Airport. The airport was initially served by domestic flights from Shahjalal International Airport by the country's national airline Biman Bangladesh Airlines Limited. After that Sylhet Civil Airport was renamed to Osmani International Airport in the honor of General M A G Osmani, the Chief of Liberation Forces.

In 1986, the airport became a full-fledyed domestic airport after the construction of terminal building, installation of navigational aids, re-construction of runway pavement, development of taxiways and aprons under the project of Sylhet Civil Airport.

After many years in 1998 limited expansion of the airport was carried out to enable medium-sized aircraft, such as the Airbus A310. In 2002 the airport was designated an international airport by the government and it received the first international arrival flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines Limited. However, the airport was not up to international standards due to shortage of equipment. In 2004 the runway lighting and airport facilities were commenced to land and takeoff safely from the airport.

After the South Asia Transport and Trade Facilitation Conference in 2006, upgradation work of terminal facilities to enable handling of international flights work was started. The improvements included construction of a new terminal building, two Jetways and a taxi-way and after the completion of work Biman would operate Hajj flights directly from the airport during the Hajj season in 2007.

In 2010 the decision was made to construct a refueling station and the work began in 2012. In 2015, Fly Dubai the 1st foreign airlines operated their flight to Sylhet from Dubai. Unfortunately the route was cancelled from the next day but in 2016, Fly Dubai decided to start its flight again from Sylhet to the Middle East.

Osmani International Airport is located at 15 km north-east from Sylhet city.

At present domestic and international passenger and cargo flights are operating by the national and international airlines operators to and from Osmani International Airport, Sylhet.
