This is a list of airports in Montserrat.

Montserrat /mɒntsəˈræt/ is a British overseas territory located in the Leeward Islands, part of the chain of islands called the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea. It measures approximately 16 km (9.9 mi) long and 11 km (6.8 mi) wide, giving 40 kilometres (25 mi) of coastline.[1] Its capital city of Plymouth was destroyed by an eruption of the previously dormant Soufriere Hills volcano in 1995.[2] The eruption continues today on a much reduced scale, the damage being confined to the areas around Plymouth including its docking facilities and the former W.H. Bramble Airport.
