    I bought a WD 1tb HDD backup.
    I have 2 MacBook airs.
    I want to backup both.
    Can I do this on one HDD or do I need 2?

    Yes, you may partition one physical drive with two partitions, discrete unique names for each and point Time Machine at the chosen partition from each MacBook Air.
