Vincenzo Florio Airport (IATA: TPS, ICAO: LICT), also known as Trapani-Birgi Airport and Birgi Airport, is an airport serving Trapani, Italy. It is one of the five airports in Sicily with civil purposes, but is also used for military issues. The base is used as one of the four forward operating bases (FOBs) used by the NATO Airborne Early Warning and Control stationed out of NATO Air Base Geilenkirchen in Geilenkirchen, Germany. The airport is named after Sicilian wine industrialist and automobile enthusiast Vincenzo Florio.

Located 8 NM (15 km; 9.2 mi) south of Trapani, and inaugurated in the early 1960s, after a long period of inactivity the airport was relaunched by the Province of Trapani in 2003, and now it hosts several flights, mainly low-cost connections.

With 1,069,528 passengers having passed through the airport in 2009, it is the third busiest airport in Sicily.
