Aden International Airport is an international airport in Aden, Yemen .

The airport was established on the former RAF Khormaksar, which opened in 1917 and closed as an RAF station in 1967. It later served as a Soviet Air Force station during the 1970s and 1980s. It is the second largest airport in Yemen after Sana'a International Airport.

The new terminal was built between 1983 - 1985 with a capacity of one million passenger a year. In 2000 the constructions at the new control tower and airport department building were completed.

The airport is also a Yemeni Air Force base. The base is home to the 128 Squadron Detachment. Aircraft attached to the squadron are mainly transport and attack helicopters (Ka27/28, Mi-8, Mi-14, Mi-17, Mi-24, Mi-171Sh).
