Philadelphia Municipal Airport (ICAO: KMPE, FAA LID: MPE) is a public use airport in Neshoba County, Mississippi, United States.[1] It is owned by the City of Philadelphia and located two nautical miles (4 km) northwest of its central business district.[1] This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned MPE by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned MPE to Griswold Airport in Madison, Connecticut).[4]
