Chame Airport (LID: MP24) is an airport serving Chame District, a district in the Panamá Oeste Province of Panama.

The airport is 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) inland from the Gulf of Panama. There is distant rising terrain to the north.

The Taboga Island non-directional beacon (Ident: TBG) and VOR-DME (Ident: TBG) are 22.9 nautical miles (42.4 km) east-northeast of the airport.[4][5]


During World War II the facility was used as an auxiliary military airfield (Chame Airdrome, Chame Airfield #1) of Howard Field as part of the defense of the Panama Canal. Assigned units were the USAAF 53d Fighter Group, 14th Fighter Squadron (2 January-24 November 1942) and 28th Fighter Squadron (10 November 1942 – 25 September 1945) flying P-39 Airacobras, AT-6, BT-13, and UC-78s.[6][7]
