Solenzara Airfield is an abandoned World War II military airfield in France, which is located approximately 31 km north-northeast of Porto-Vecchio on Corsica. It was a temporary airfield used by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force 415th Night Fighter Squadron between 9 July-1 September, flying Bristol Beaufighters.

When the Americans pulled out the airfield was dismantled by engineers. Today the location of the airfield is abandoned and is a grass pasture.
