W.H. Bramble Airport, also known as Blackburne Airport, was a small international airport on the east coast of the island of Montserrat, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. It was named after Montserrat Chief Minister William Henry Bramble.

The airport was destroyed in 1997 by an eruption of the nearby Soufriere Hills volcano, which obliterated much of the southern part of the island. For several years after the disaster, Montserrat was only accessible by helicopters or boats, until July 2005, when the new Gerald's Airport (now John A. Osborne Airport) was completed at the north end of the island (North of Saint Johns and South of Gerald's). Bramble Airport had used the IATA airport code MNI, but this has now been transferred to the new airport. Google Maps has shown that the airport is now covered with ash with no visible traces.

W. H. Bramble Airport was served by the following airlines:
