Ástor Piazzolla International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Mar del Plata "Ástor Piazzolla") (IATA: MDQ, ICAO: SAZM) is located 7 km (4.3 miles) north of the center of Mar del Plata, a city in the Buenos Aires Province of Argentina. The airport covers an area of 436 hectares (1077 acres) and is operated by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 S.A.

Also known as Mar del Plata Airport, it provides domestic flights on Aerolíneas Argentinas, Austral Líneas Aéreas, Sol Líneas Aéreas and Líneas Aéreas del Estado (LADE).

The existing terminal building was constructed in 1978 for the FIFA World Cup. In 1994, due to the Pan American Games, the terminal was expanded. On October 20, 1998, Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 took over the airport.

This airport was named after Brigadier General Bartolomé de la Colina until August, 2008. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner changed the name of the airport to Ástor Piazzolla, a musician who was born in Mar del Plata.
