"Airport" is putting it mildly.

More like a spaceport.

From the wiki link:

In 2016, al Hammami caused controversy during an inauguration of an airport in Dhi Qar Governorate, when he said that Sumerians had a port where spaceships could fly to other planets in 5000 BC,[7] based on writings of Zecharia Sitchin, Samuel Noah Kramer and H. G. Wells.[8] Later on, he claimed that Noah's Ark embarked from Nasiriyah.[9]

That spaceport? Mos Eisley.

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
