Sherbro International Airport (IATA: BTEICAO: GFBN) was an international airport located outside the town of Bonthe on Sherbro Island, Sierra Leone.

The airport is reported closed[1][2] since around 2002, possibly in connection with the Sierra Leone Civil War.

There are plans to construct a new airport runway [3] on Sherbro Island. The runway will be part of a new development program for the island.
