Saint-Pierre Airport (French: Aéroport de Saint-Pierre) (IATA: FSP, ICAO: LFVP) is a regional airport located 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) south of Saint-Pierre, in the French overseas community (collectivité d'outre-mer) of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, off the eastern coast of Canada near Newfoundland.
The airport was completed in August 1999 and consists of four buildings and a control tower. The old airport, opened in 1965 and located on the south side of the inner harbour, was re-located due to the lack of room for expansion (The current runway is 1,800 m (5,906 ft) when compared to the old 10/29 at 1,250 m (4,101 ft)). The main terminal building is a two floor structure. The old airport is located in city centre St. Pierre and is being redeveloped for housing complexes. The control tower, terminal building, hangar and part of the old runway (mark number 29) are intact. The airport project cost 370 million French francs.
