Martinique Aimé Césaire International Airport, French: Aéroport International Martinique Aimé Césaire (IATA: FDF, ICAO: TFFF), is the international airport of Martinique in the French West Indies. Located in Le Lamentin, a suburb of the capital Fort-de-France, it was opened in 1950 and renamed in 2007, after author and politician Aimé Césaire.


The airport is at an elevation of 16 ft (5 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 10/28 with an asphalt surface measuring 3,000 m × 45 m (9,843 ft × 148 ft).[1] When Air Martinique existed, its headquarters was located on the airport property.[3][4] The runway is of a length that can accommodate large jets, including 747s from France. On at least two occasions, the Concorde flew from Paris and landed at the airport in Martinique.[5]
