Bournemouth Airport (previously known as Hurn Airport and Bournemouth International Airport) is an airport located 3.5 NM north-northeast of Bournemouth, in southern England. Bournemouth Airport opened as RAF Hurn in 1941 and began commercial services in the late 1950s, with Palmair commencing flights to Majorca in October 1958.

Subsequently Ryanair and Thomson Airways based aircraft at the airport, with scheduled flights now frequently serving Western Europe and the Mediterranean area, with charter and seasonal services serving North Africa, North America and the Caribbean. Passenger numbers peaked in 2007 when just over 1 million passed through the airport, however this fell to around 750,000 in 2010.

On 25 November 2008, Bournemouth Airport was ranked best airport in the United Kingdom and 3rd best in the world, after Singapore Changi Airport and Hong Kong International Airport, by the Daily Telegraph Travel Awards.

Bournemouth Airport has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (number P736) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction. As of September 2010, Ryanair and Thomson Airways remain the primary users of the airport.
