Almirante Marcos A. Zar Airport (Welsh: Almirante Marcos A. Zar Maes Awyr, Spanish: Aeropuerto Almirante Marcos A. Zar) (IATA: REL, ICAO: SAVT) is an airport in Chubut Province, Argentina, named after the Argentine Navy Admiral and aviator Marcos Andrés Zar. The airport serves the cities of Trelew and Rawson. Two airlines operate regularly to the airport, LADE and Aerolíneas Argentinas, and in May 2009 the latter is supposed to start direct international flights to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This airport replaced an airport noted as a pivotal site during the Trelew Massacre. On August 15, 1972, 110 prisoners escaped from the Rawson jail and tried to hijack a Austral Líneas Aéreas BAC 1-11 en route to Comodoro Rivadavia, in order to escape to Chile and then to Cuba. Their plans failed, and 19 of them were killed by the army on August 22, at 3:30 AM.

This airport is 7km from Trelew and 26km from Rawson (capital city of Chubut). It has a 3,500m² passenger terminal and 126,000m² of runways. It has a parking places for 128 cars.

It also home of the Argentine Naval Aviation squadron of P-3 Orions.

It is operated by London Supply.
