Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport ( ) is a small regional airport located 9 km south-southwest of Tarbes and near Lourdes, both communes of the Hautes-Pyrénées département in France.

Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport currently only has two scheduled destinations, Air France to Paris and Ryanair to London Stansted. In April 2011, Meridiana Fly will commence flights to Rome-Fiumicino and Ryanair to Milan-Bergamo allowing many Italian Catholic pilgrims an easy route to Lourdes . The airport has sufficient capabilities to handle larger aircraft such as the Boeing 747.

Over 70% of the airport traffic is charter flight from a variety of airlines across Europe journeying to the nearby Lourdes as part of a Catholic Pilgrimage.

The airport is home to the Socata light aircraft factory.
