Gravelbottom Airport is the sole international airport of the Garden of Kalgachia. Located in a river valley in the southwest of the country, it was built to service aircraft of the Kalgachi flag carrier El Kal Airways - a unitary subsidiary of the Directorate of Public Works responsible for civil air transport - on its newly-opened routes to Nova England. In the years since, the airport has acquired additional uses - although the reluctance of the Kalgachi authorities to permit economic or political dependence on foreign powers has given this development a somewhat stunted character, not helped by the frequent disruption of its operations by Tee-al alerts.

Civilian and commercial operations from the airport were suspended during the Inner-Benacian Conflict (1681 AN–) as a consequence of hostile actions directed against the site and its strategically important runway.
