Melchior Ndadaye International Airport (IATA: BJM, ICAO: HBBA) is an airport in Bujumbura, the former capital of Burundi. It is Burundi's only international airport and the only one with a paved runway.
The airport was opened in 1952. On 1 July 2019, the airport was renamed Melchior Ndadaye International Airport after the first democratically elected president of Burundi who was murdered in a coup d'etat in October 1993, three months after being elected. This event sparked the decade-long Burundian Civil War.
