Massawa International Airport (IATA: MSWICAO: HHMS) is an airport in Massawa, a major city in the Northern Red Sea region of Eritrea.

Overview[edit]

The Massawa International Airport is a large establishment. It is one of Eritrea's major airports.[1]

In the colonial period, a 1970 km line was established between Massawa-Djibouti-Berbera-Galadi-Mogadishu.[2]

As of 2014, the airport only hosts domestic flights since the companies that formed it do not have an international license.[1]

The Eritrea Investment Centre has proposed a new $60 million development project at the airport. It has also offered incentives on taxation, provision of supplies that the market does not already provide, provision of heavy machinery, and easy access to government loans.[1]
