Leonard M. Thompson International Airport

Leonard M. Thompson International Airport, formerly known as The Marsh Harbour International Airport (IATA: MHH, ICAO: MYAM), is an airport serving Marsh Harbour, a town in the Abaco Islands, The Bahamas. Leonard M. Thompson International Airport is the second busiest airport in the Bahamas and the second largest international gateway into the country only after Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau.

A new airport terminal was opened on 27 May 2014.
