Merowe Airport (IATA: MWE, ICAO: HSMN) is an airport serving the town of Merowe in Sudan. After critical facilities were completed in 2006, the current airport replaced the smaller Merowe Town airport 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) to the west.[3] The new Merowe airport has hosted Sudanese Air Force jet fighters, but does not host any full time units stationed.[4]

The airport was attacked during the 2023 Sudan clashes, where RSF militias captured Egyptian soldiers who were serving joint military exercises with their Sudanese counterparts.[5]
