Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport, French: Aéroport International Martinique Aimé Césaire (IATA: FDFICAO: TFFF), is the international airport of Martinique in the French West Indies. Located in Le Lamentin, a suburb of the capital Fort-de-France, it was opened in 1950 and renamed in 2007, after author and politician Aimé Césaire.
