Asaba International Airport, also known as ABB, is located off Asaba-Benin Expressway, Asaba, Delta. It serves Asaba and Onitsha. It was built by the former governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, in 2011. Few weeks after its completion, the airport commenced commercial and private flight operations. It also handled its first international flight, a Boeing 737 en route for South Africa, in 2018. The airport chiefly handles domestic flights to major cities in Nigeria.

Because of lack of basic facilities, commercial operations were suspended by NCAA in 2015. The airport lacked a perimeter fence. Also, the runway and taxiway were in a poor state. In order to get back in business fully, the state government began repairs in 2016. In 2019, the state government announced the installation of a new Instrument Landing System (ILS).

Commercial operations are on-going at the airport. Asaba airport has recorded greater air traffic movement since the installation of the ILS equipment. It has also recorded high passenger movement.
