Osvaldo Vieira International Airport (IATA: OXB, ICAO: GGOV) is an airport that serves the city of Bissau, the capital city of Guinea-Bissau. It is the only international airport in the country.

Osvaldo Vieira International Airport has one runway, heading 03/21, with a length of 10,498 feet (3200 m). The altitude of this runway is 127 feet (39 m). This runway is also the one of the three in Guinea-Bissau that are paved. There is currently only one intercontinental route, flown three times a week to Lisbon, Portugal.

The airport had to be closed on June 7, 1998 due to intense fighting in and around Bissau. It was officially reopened in July 1999 when a TAP Portugal plane carrying Prime Minister Francisco Fadul, along with numerous other dignitaries from both Portugal and Guinea-Bissau, landed at Osvaldo Vieira.
