Skikda Airport was an airport in Algeria (IATA: SKI, ICAO: DABP), located approximately 5 km east of Skikda; about 60 km north-northeast of Constantine.

The 1,478 metres (4,849 ft) asphalt runway was closed sometime prior to 2004. The area is overbuilt and used as a storage for construction materials.

During World War II, the facility was known as "Philippeville Airfield". It was a major Twelfth Air Force base of operations during the North African Campaign against the German Afrika Korps. The 310th Bombardment Group flew B-25 Mitchells from the airfield between 10 November-10 December 1943.
