Monastir Habib Bourguiba International Airport (French: Aéroport International de Monastir–Habib Bourguiba, AIMHB, Tunisian Arabic: مطار الحبيب بورقيبة الدولي) (IATA: MIR, ICAO: DTMB) is an airport serving Monastir in Tunisia. The Tunisian Civil Aviation and Airports Authority (OACA) awarded the management of the airport to TAV Airports Holding in March 2007. The airport is named after the former president Habib Bourguiba was born in Monastir.
During World War II, the airport was known as Monastir Airfield and was used by the United States Army Air Forces Twelfth Air Force 81st Fighter Group during the North African Campaign. The 81st flew P-39 Airacobras from the airfield between 26 May and 10 August 1943.
The airport activity is mainly due to the movement of tourists coming to visit Monastir, Sousse and the surrounding resorts (Monastir-Skanes and Port El Kantaoui in particular). Almost all charter flights are concentrated during the tourist season. The main airlines operating currently at the airport are Nouvelair and Tunisair. With a capacity of 3.5 million passengers per year, the terminal covers 28,000 m². The airport was the first in the country in terms of traffic with 4,279,802 passengers in 2007.
Like all Tunisian airports, the airport is originally managed by the Office of Civil Aviation and Airports (OACA). However, in January 2008, it came under the management of the Turkish consortium TAV Airports Holding for a period of 40 years, under the concession.
