Mostar International Airport (Bosnian: Međunarodni aerodrom Mostar/Међународни аеродром Мостар; Croatian: Međunarodna zračna luka Mostar) (IATA: OMOICAO: LQMO) is an airport near Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, situated in the village of Ortiješ, 4 NM (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) south southeast of Mostar's railway station.[1] Mostar Airport was opened for civilian air traffic in 1965 for domestic flights.

In 1984, the airport became Mostar International Airport and was announced to be an alternative for Sarajevo International Airport during the 1984 Winter Olympics. The airport is also popular for people making the pilgrimage to nearby Međugorje. In 2012, the company had a twofold increase in traffic, making it the second bussiest in the Bosnia and Herzegovina right after the Sarajevo Airport. In the period between 2013 and 2016 Italian companies and local authorities plan further investments, which include: renovating and expanding terminal building, expanding the apron (platform), modernising equipment, possible expanding of runway and further education of airport staff in Italy, also rebuilding fuel tanks (which were destroyed in the past war) and hangars for private planes and for planes of Secondary Traffic school of Mostar which uses Airport Mostar for flight school and educating students for future work.
