Tarbes–Lourdes–Pyrénées Airport (French: Aéroport de Tarbes–Lourdes–Pyrénées) (IATA: LDEICAO: LFBT) is a small regional airport located 9 km south-southwest of Tarbes and near Lourdes, both communes of the Hautes-Pyrénées département in France.

Over 70% of the airport traffic is charter flight from a variety of airlines across Europe journeying to the nearby Lourdes as part of a Catholic pilgrimage. The airport has sufficient capabilities to handle larger aircraft such as the Boeing 747.

The airport is the site of the Socata light aircraft factory, maker of the TBM 850 single-engine turboprop.
