San Salvador Airport (IATA: ZSA, ICAO: MYSM), also known as Cockburn Town Airport, is an airport in San Salvador, Bahamas.

San Salvador International Airport is one of the few airports in the Bahamas that has Instrument rating landing for airplanes, and as a result aircraft can now land at ZSA after official sunset (with local civil aviation permission).

Bahamas Customs and Immigration is present at ZSA between normal working hours of 9am-5pm. The main carrier at ZSA is the national flag carrier Bahamasair, which has daily flights to and from Nassau. Spirit Airlines flies into San Salvador Airport weekly out of its Fort Lauderdale hub. Club Med, a major hotel on the island, also has charter jet service flights direct from Paris, Montreal and New York.
