Benina International Airport (Arabic: مطار بنينة الدولي) serves Benghazi, Libya. It is located in the town of Benina, 19 km east of Benghazi, from which it takes its name. The airport is operated by the Civil Aviation and Meteorology Bureau of Libya and is the second largest in the country after Tripoli International Airport. Benina International is also the secondary hub of both Buraq Air and flag carrier, Libyan Airlines.

On 22 February 2011, in the opening week of the Libyan uprising , Al Jazeera reported that the airport's runways had been destroyed, preventing aircraft from operating. That was not the case, and the airport operated normally.
