El Haouaria Airfield is an abandoned military airfield in Tunisia, located approximately 44km northeast of Tāklisah; about 40km east of Tunis. It was a temporary airfield constructed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1943 during the Tunisian Campaign.

El Haouaria was used primarily by the United States Army Air Force Ninth Air Force 324th Fighter Group during June thorugh early October 1943, flying P-40 Warhawks. After the 324th left for Menzel Heurr Airfield, the airfield was dismantled and abandoned. Today, the remains of the runway are visible in aerial photography, but nothing else remains.
