Enfidha–Hammamet International Airport (IATA: NBEICAO: DTNH) is an airport in Enfidha, Tunisia, located about 40 kilometres (25 miles) southwest from the town of Hammamet. The airport is mostly used by European airlines bringing travellers to Tunisian holiday resorts.

History

Construction began in 2007 and the airport opened on 1 December 2009 with the first flight on 4 December 2009. The total building costs were given as 436 million euros.

It was originally named after the former Tunisian president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. On 15 January 2011, one day after he left the country due to the social protests against his long dictatorship, his name and his pictures were removed from the airport building. The new name is Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport.
