Metz-Nancy-Lorraine Airport or Aéroport de Metz-Nancy-Lorraine is an airport serving the Lorraine région of France. It is located in Goin, 16.5 km southeast of Metz, (both communes of the Moselle département) and north of Nancy (a commune of Meurthe-et-Moselle).

It opened to the public on October 28, 1991 and replaced Nancy-Essey and Metz-Frescaty airports. The airport is open 24/7. The runway was lengthened to 3050 m and refurbished in mid-2006 to be able to handle all types of large aircraft. The terminal building is about 7500 sqm and could accommodate up to 500,000 passengers per year with 14 check-in desks, 2 gates (a third one will be added soon) and 2 luggage claim belts. The cargo terminal is 3,600 sqm and could handle up to 60,000 tons of freight per year. The airport was a regional hub for DHL from 2000 to 2006, with flights to Toulouse, Nice, Marseilles, Cologne, Brussels, Paris, Vitoria and East-Midlands.
