Enfidaville Airfield is an abandoned World War II military airfield in Tunisia, located approximately 13 km north-northwest of Harqalah; approximately 90 km southwest of Tunis. It was used by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force during the North African Campaign as a B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bomber ant troop carrier base. Known units assigned were:
- 316th Troop Carrier Group, 21 June-3 September 1943, C-47 Skytrain
- 376th Bombardment Group, 26 September-17 November 1943, B-17 Flying Fortress
The 376th Bomber Group was composed of B-24 "Liberator" heavy bombers. Aircrew and support personnel began arriving in late August, 1943. The first mission carried out by the 376th was on 1Oct43 against the aircraft factory at Wiener Neustadt in Austria.
When the Americans moved to Italy, the airfield was dismantled and abandoned. For many years the airfield had almost completely returned to its natural state, with only the outlines of the main runway and what appeared to be taxiways faintly visible in aerial photography. Today it is the location of the Enfidha – Hammamet International Airport that was built in its place and opened in 2009.
