Nashua Municipal Airport (IATA: ASH, ICAO: KASH, FAA LID: ASH), also known as Boire Field, is a public airport located three miles (5 km) northwest of the central business district (CBD) of Nashua, a city in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA.
This general aviation airport covers 392 acres (159 ha) and has one runway. There is space for 441 aircraft located on the field. Air Traffic Control is at the airport from 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. It has no scheduled commercial service.
Nashua Municipal is one of the busiest airports in New England in terms of take-offs and landings due to its use for flight training by adjacent Daniel Webster College, which maintains more than a dozen single-engine aircraft at the airport.

The airport dates back to 1934, when the city of Nashua bought a small existing airport, which lacked a hangar and had a grass runway. Over the next several years Nashua, with federal help, paved the 2,000-foot (610 m) runway and put up some buildings. According to the history in the airport Web site, the hangar was constructed from bricks reused from a Nashua factory that burned in 1930 in what was known here as the Crown Hill Fire.
In 1943 it was named Boire Field, after Ensign Paul Boire, who was Nashua's first casualty in World War II.
The Nashua Airport Authority was established to oversee the airport in 1961. The New England Aeronautical Institute was founded here in 1965. The NEIA's Daniel Webster Junior College division was founded in 1967. The two schools merged in 1978 to form the current Daniel Webster College.
The control tower was built in 1972.
The airport was one of the first to operate with a Non-Federal Control Tower in the early 1990s. This type of air traffic service, called a contract tower, is common today.
In addition to the professional pilot flight training offered at Daniel Webster College, the airport has private flight schools offering training and certification in fixed-wing airplanes and helicopters.
Also offered from the Nashua airport is on-demand air charter. One of these providers is Infinity Aviation which operates a number of Hawker mid-size jet aircraft.
There are two FBOs or fixed base operators that provide aircraft servicing, fueling and maintenance and flight planning resources: Infinity Aviation Services and GFW Aeroservices.
The second-floor Midfield Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch on weekends and a few weekdays.
