Harrisburg International Airport is a public use airport located in Lower Swatara Township, Pennsylvania, eight nautical miles (15 km) southeast of the central business district of Harrisburg. It is owned by the Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority.

The airport code MDT is a reference to the surrounding community of Middletown, which is a suburb of Harrisburg. Planes landing at MDT from the south are often routed near or over Three Mile Island, only a few miles from the airport. The airport, frequently referred to as HIA, is the primary commercial service airport in South Central Pennsylvania and ranks as the third-busiest airport in Pennsylvania for both passenger enplanements and cargo shipments behind Philadelphia International Airport and Pittsburgh International Airport.
