This study examined the economic benefits of Gombe International Airport. The study used secondary and primary data acquired from questionnaire survey. The respondents for the questionnaire survey were randomly selected from the passengers, and purposively sampled from the management and staff at the airport. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and line graph. Findings revealed that the airport has attracted local and foreign investors to the region; created job opportunities; provided a lot of revenues, and boosted the regional and international trade in the area. However, the growth of the airport is constrained by inadequate facilities and infrastructure. It is therefore recommended to upgrade the facilities and infrastructures at the airport in order to increase the economic benefits of the airport.
