Tromsø Airport, formerly known as Tromsø Airport, Langnes (Norwegian: Tromsø lufthavn) is situated in Tromsø, on the western side of the island of Tromsøya, 1.7 Nautical miles (3.1 km) northwest of the city center, which is on the eastern side of the island. The airport is the largest airport in Northern Norway (Norwegian: Nord-Norge), serving 1,629,967 passengers in 2009.

Tromsø Airport serves Tromsø, as well as northern and central parts of Troms county. It is an important hub for flights to many airports in Finnmark, though most passengers travel to and from Oslo. Most scheduled flights are domestic, including flights to Svalbard Airport, Longyear at Longyearbyen, though a few international destinations are also served (London Gatwick, England, Riga, Latvia and Murmansk, Russia). Additionally, charter operators fly to some destinations in Southern Europe and the Canary Islands.
