Description:
Herat Airfield (or Herat Airport) is 6.5 miles (10.5 km) southeast of the city Herat, just east of the Herat-Farah road, close to Guzara in the Guzara District of the Herat Province.

The airport was built by Americans in the late 1950s and bombed by Allied forces in 2001. Prior to the arrival of allied forces, the airport was a military base for fighters and transport aircraft (likely Antonov An-26, Antonov An-32 and Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21).

It has been used by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in the last decade as well as by the military of Afghanistan and the Afghan Border Police. In recent years the runway was extended and newly paved. The airport will soon become international, Herat International Airport, in which direct flights will go between Herat and Iran, Pakistan, Dubai, Tajikistan and other nations.
