John C. Munro International Airport or Hamilton Airport, (IATA: YHM, ICAO: CYHM), is an international airport located 6.0 nautical miles (11.11 km) southwest of the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

The airport is designed for use by large planes on overseas flights, and includes a 10,000x200 ft (3,050x60 m) paved runway with centreline lighting for low-visibility operations, as well as a smaller 6,000x150 ft (1,830x45 m) paved runway. It serves as an alternate and reliever for nearby Toronto Pearson International Airport; and was recently used during the Air France Flight 358 incident. Additionally, the airport received notoriety when a chartered Boeing 707 carrying rock band Bon Jovi skid off the runway.

In 2000 WestJet expanded to Canada's eastern region, choosing Hamilton as the airline's eastern region hub, and flying to destinations from Newfoundland to British Columbia. But in April, 2004, WestJet moved its eastern hub from Hamilton to Toronto. While Hamilton retained flights to many destinations, all of the service between Hamilton and Montreal and Ottawa was moved to Toronto. In the wake of the WestJet pullout, CanJet began service to Hamilton in 2003. Then in the spring of 2005, two weeks after Air Canada Jazz announced it would enter the local market with service from Hamilton to Montreal and Ottawa, Canjet announced a complete departure from Hamilton.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is located at this airport.
