Djerba-Zarzis international airport (AITA code: DJE • ICAO code: DTTJ) serves Houmt Souk and the island of Djerba and more generally all of south-eastern Tunisia. Located nine kilometers west of Houmt Souk, it was put into operation in 1970 to improve the tourist attractiveness of Djerba.
With an area of 295 hectares and a capacity of 4,000,000 passengers per year, its activity is mainly linked to the transport of tourists coming to visit Djerba and its region. The terminal covers 73,000 m2 and is completed by a new terminal, covering an area of 57,000 m² on three levels, inaugurated on December 22, 20071.
Like the vast majority of Tunisian airports, the airport is managed by the Office of Civil Aviation and Airports (OACA).
