Sohag International Airport (Sohag International Airport)
Sohag International Airport (مطار سوهاج الدولي) is an Egyptian International airport serving the city of Sohag, capital of the Sohag Governorate of Egypt. The airport is 24 km south of the city. The airport is a new establishment, as it was built in 2010. The International airport is designed to resemble an Ancient Egyptian temple.

The Sohag VOR-DME (Ident: SHG) is located 0.5 nautical miles off the threshold of runway 15.

The airport was officially inaugurated by former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on 25 May 2010. The project cost an estimated US$80 million, with construction beginning in January 2009 to include a passenger terminal, control tower, aprons, a runway, and 33 buildings allocated for various airport services. The airport was originally known as Mubarak International Airport, but following the ousting of Mubarak in 2011 and a subsequent court verdict ordering removal of Mubarak's name from all establishments in Egypt, the airport was renamed Sohag International Airport.

The United Arab Republic (UAR; الجمهورية العربية المتحدة), or simply the Arab Republic or Arabia, was a sovereign state in the Middle East from 1958 until 1971. It was initially a political union between Egypt (including the occupied Gaza Strip) and Syria from 1958 until Syria seceded from the union after the 1961 Syrian coup d'état. Egypt continued to be known officially as the United Arab Republic until 1971.

The republic was led by Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser. The UAR was a member of the United Arab States, a loose confederation with the Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen, which was dissolved in 1961.
