Ushuaia – Malvinas Argentinas International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Ushuaia - Malvinas Argentinas) (IATA: USH, ICAO: SAWH) is located 4 km (2.5 mi) south of the center of Ushuaia, a city on the island of Tierra del Fuego in the Tierra del Fuego Province of Argentina. The Airport is also claimed by Argentina as the airport for the disputed Falkland Islands.

This small international airport was opened in 1995, replacing an older one. The airport has been used by various distinct airlines at different periods. It is the world's southernmost international airport and is often used by passengers as a cruise-ship gateway to the Antarctic.

Ushuaia International Airport is fit to receive airplanes as large as the Boeing 747. Tower Air used to operate such types into the airport, and Aerolíneas Argentinas operates 747-400s into the airport during events of high passenger numbers (such as entire cruise-ship passenger payloads). Two chartered Air France Concordes also visited in the past: F-BTSD arriving from Buenos Aires and continuing to Santiago, Chile, in early 1999; the second arriving from Easter Island, Chile and continuing to Buenos Aires prior to the cessation of most Concorde charter flights on July 25, 2000. Condor and LTU also offered charter flights from Germany, and First Choice Airways from the UK.
