Massawa International Airport (IATA: MSW, ICAO: HHMS) is an airport in Massawa, a major city in the Northern Red Sea region of Eritrea. It is considered to be the successor of the Otumlo Airport, also in Massawa, which was destroyed in 1941.
The Massawa International Airport is a large establishment. It is one of Eritrea's major airports.
As of 2014, the airport accommodated only domestic flights since the companies that formed it do not have international licenses.
The Eritrea Investment Centre has proposed a new $60 million development project at the airport. Additionally, it has offered incentives on taxation, provision of supplies that the market does not already provide, provision of heavy machinery, and easy access to government loans.
There are no active airlines operating from Massawa.
Eritrean Air Force still uses the airport as one of their three air bases.
