Haverfordwest Airport (Welsh: Maes Awyr Hwlffordd) (IATA: HAW, ICAO: EGFE), also known as Withybush Airport, is a minor airport located 2 NM (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) north of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. It is on the site of the former RAF Haverfordwest, which was operational between 1943 and 1945. Pembrokeshire County Council bought the site in the 1950s and it has been a civil airfield since, with a number of other organisations also using it.[2]

Haverfordwest Airport has a CAA Ordinary Licence (Number P595) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction, as authorised by the licensee, Pembrokeshire County Council.[3] Outside CAA-licensed opening hours, Haverfordwest operates unlicensed.
