Ajman International Airport (Arabic: مطار عجمان الدولي‎) is a yet to be built international airport that will serve Ajman, the smallest state of the United Arab Emirates. Project construction was originally planned to have started in the second half of 2008 in the Al Manama area of the Ajman, though it did not inevitably begin until the third quarter of 2009. Operations were scheduled to begin by 2011, though the airport is now estimated to be completed by the first quarter of 2015.

The airport is being constructed on five kilometers. It will be able to initially serve at least 1 million passengers annually, as well as being able to handle a minimum of 400,000 tonnes of cargo.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10]
