    Biggs Army Airfield is one of six airports of embarkation or disembarkation, which means it lands and departs fixed wing aircraft to go overseas to deployment areas throughout the world. During 2019, more than 72,000 service members passed through Fort Bliss prior to deploying overseas, and Airfield Manager Randall J. Stewart said they are capable of receiving upward of 400 aircraft a day, if needed. In addition to deployments and redeployments, Biggs Army Airfield also supports the 1st Armored Division Combat Aviation Brigade, which has rotary wing aircraft, and the 204th Military Intelligence Battalion, which has fixed-wing aircraft.
