History

During World War II, Abadan Airport was a major logistics center for Lend-Lease aircraft being sent to the Soviet Union by the United States. Beginning in May 1942, the United States Army Air Forces Air Technical Service Command and the Douglas Aircraft Company established a plant here, with the 17th Air Depot Group assembling newly arrived aircraft and flight-testing them. Once prepared, they were flown to Mehrabad Airport, Tehran, for delivery to the Soviets. The airport was designated as Station #3, by the Air Transport Command North African Wing, with connecting routes to Mehrabad Airport, Tehran; RAF Habbaniya, Iraq, and Bahrain Airport, Bahrain.
