Last Update: July 21, 2021 / 10:05:53 GMT/Zulu time
Elwak Airport is located at the Kenyan-Somali (Jubbaland) border about 8nm west of the border, at the western outskirt of Elwak City.
Some media report the new airport was built across the border in Somalia, however, Satellite images do not show an aerodrome in Bur Ache (Somalia), but show a new aerodrome with matching properties (gravel runway 2000 meters in length) 4nm west of Elwak City. According to the media reports this new aerodrome was opened in 2016, but was closed again due to political disputes between Somalia and Kenya.
