Gibraltar International Airport (IATA: GIB, ICAO: LXGB) or North Front Airport is the civilian airport that serves the British overseas territory of Gibraltar. The runway is owned by the Ministry of Defence for use by the Royal Air Force as RAF Gibraltar. Civilian operators use the civilian-operated terminal. National Air Traffic Services hold the contract for provision of air navigation services at the airport. In 2017, the airport handled 571,184 passengers and 302,094 kg of cargo on 4,888 total flights. 

Winston Churchill Avenue (the main road heading towards the land border with Spain) intersects the airport. It is exposed to strong cross winds around the rock and across the Bay of Gibraltar, making landings in winter particularly uncomfortable. Although located in Gibraltar, the airport is also used by people travelling to or from neighbouring parts of southern Spain such as the Costa del Sol or the Campo de Gibraltar.

There is one terminal at Gibraltar International. A new terminal was constructed at Gibraltar International due to increasing numbers of passengers. The terminal is 35,000 m2 (380,000 sq ft), which is 15,000 m2 (160,000 sq ft) bigger than the old terminal. It has two baggage carousels and three departure gates, none of which are equipped with jet bridges. It has a passenger capacity of up to 1.5 million passengers per year.
