Located on the northern part of Algeria, Biskra Airport performs international air transport for travellers coming from France and other parts of Algeria.
Little is known about the airport except that it was once a military base for the United States Twelfth Air Force who fought during the North African Campaign in the early 1940s. The American forces clashed against the German Afrika Korps in that time. Various air force battalions such as the B-17 Flying Fortresses and 301st Bombardment Group operated in the airport until the end of the war in 1943.
Due to the lack of information, it's safe to assume that there is only one terminal in Biskra Airport. At present, only two airlines serve at this port of entry: Aigle Azur going to and from Paris-Orly region as well as Air Algerie which flies between Algiers, Lyon, and Paris-Orly.

To learn more information, travellers will need to enquire at the airport where they will board their first flight or ask an official representative at the Algerian embassy.
