Manchester-Boston Regional Airport , commonly referred to simply as "Manchester Airport," is a public airport located three miles (5 km) south of the central business district of Manchester, New Hampshire on the county line of Hillsborough and Rockingham counties. The airport lies in two communities, Manchester and Londonderry.

Founded in 1927, it first moved more than 1 million passengers in a year in 1997. It handled 3.72 million passengers in 2008, down from its all-time high of 4.33 million in 2005. Still, it remains New England's fourth-largest airport in passenger volume, following Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts, Bradley International Airport in Connecticut, and T. F. Green Airport in Rhode Island, in that descending order.

The facility was known as Manchester Airport until April 18, 2006, when it added "Boston Regional" to advertise its proximity to Boston, about 50 mi (80.5 km) to the south.

Certified for Cat III B Instrument Landing operations, the airport has a reputation for never surrendering to bad weather. The airport has closed only once, when the national airspace was shut down for two days following September 11, 2001, and all American airports were required to close as well.
