Tuzla Air Base was a military airport near Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History

Tuzla International was once the largest military airport of the former Yugoslavia. The 350th Reconnaissance Aviation Squadron was active there for a time. It was placed under the control of the United Nations Protection Force in 1992, and from 1996 onwards it became the main hub for the Implementation Force (IFOR), which was charged with supervising the implementation of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1998, the canton of Tuzla turned Tuzla International to a civil airport. Tuzla International Airport opened on 10 October 1998 as a civilian airport and military airfield.
