Saint-Hubert Airport (ICAO: EBSH) is a public use airport located near Saint-Hubert, Belgium, Luxembourg, Wallonia, Belgium.

It is the second highest airport in Belgium at 1,847 ft (563 m) above sea level. It has four grass runways, almost perpendicular; five aircraft hangars are rented on the site. It is located in the heart of the Ardennes, in uncontrolled airspace, accessible through the E411 road.


Initially created as an aviation school in 1930, it was used as a US Army center in 1945, and then sold to the Belgian state in 1946 and served as a backup airport for the city of Ostend, in case Melsbroek or Brussels Airport were to be unusable.
