Deir ez-Zor Airport (Arabic: مطار دير الزور) (IATA: DEZ, ICAO: OSDZ) is an airport serving Deir ez-Zor, a city in northeastern Syria.
Due to the city's close proximity to the Iraqi border and a recent Israeli military attack on a suspected nuclear facility nearby, foreign travellers to this airport can expect close attention by Syrian security services.
Famous quotes containing the word airport:
“Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.”
—Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
