Hargeisa Egal International Airport (IATA: HGA, ICAO: HCMH) (Somali: Madaarka Hargeysa ee Calaamiga) is an international airport in the city of Hargeisa in Somaliland, a de facto independent republic which is recognized as a part of Somalia. Hargeisa is Somalia's second largest city and Somaliland's capital and largest city.

The airport has been rebuilt since 1991 and is now a modern international airport. The airport serves only a few airlines because it is internationally unrecognised with only Ethiopia having foreign links with Somaliland.

The airport was named after the late President of Somaliland [[H.E Mr] Muhammad Haji Ibrahim Egal. Moxamed Xaaji Ibraahim Cigaal or Egal was a former Somali prime minister in the early 1960s. Mr. Egal found a new political awakening by becoming Somaliland region's second president.

The "Egal International Airport" has undergone some modernizing and rebuilding with the rest of the Somaliland region. However, the airport is still referred to by its old and more common name, Hargeisa International Airport.
