Marsh Harbour Airport (IATA: MHH, ICAO: MYAM) is an airport serving Marsh Harbour, a town in the Abaco Islands in The Bahamas.

Marsh Harbour is a major tourist attraction in the Bahamas, it is home to just propeller aircraft and regional airliners. It serves Nassau and a few Florida cities. The government has been trying to expand the airport for years; groundwork has been started for a longer runway that could allow larger, regional jets to operate in and out of Marsh Harbour while the airport terminal has seen only minimal enhancements.

R&B Singer Aaliyah died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 along with 8 others. The cause of the accident was the plane being overgrossed (overweight) making a successful takeoff impossible.

The airport resides at an elevation of 6 feet (2 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 09/27 with an asphalt surface measuring 1,523 by 30 metres (4,997 × 98 ft).
