Praia International Airport (IATA: RAI, ICAO: GVNP) is an airport located on Santiago Island in Cape Verde. It was opened in late 2005, replacing the old Francisco Mendes International Airport. It is located about 3 km northeast of central Praia in the southeastern part of the island of Santiago.

The first flight to the new airport was on October 23, 2005. Even though the airport serves the capital and largest city, Praia, Cape Verde’s main international airport is Amílcar Cabral International Airport located on the smaller island of Sal.
