Soltane Airfield is an abandoned World War II military airfield in Tunisiamarker, which was located approximately 5 km southeast of Ain Soltane (Sidi-Nsar-Allah); about 170 km south-southwest of Tunismarker.

It was a temporary airfield built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, used by the United States Army Air Force Ninth Air Force during the Tunisian Campaign. It was used by the 57th Fighter Group, which flew P-40 Warhawks from the airfield between 21 Mar-4 Apr 1943.

When the Americans moved out at the end of April 1943, the airfield was dismantled and abandoned. Today the airfield's precise location is undetermined, as agricultural fields have obliterated it's existence.
