Conakry International Airport (IATA: CKY, ICAO: GUCY), also known as Gbessia International Airport, is an airport located in Conakry, the capital of the Republic of Guinea in West Africa. It is divided into domestic and international terminals. The airport services a number of West African airlines such as in Air Ivoire, Benin Golf Air and Slok Airlines, and a number of North African and European airlines: Brussels Airlines, Air France and Royal Air Maroc.

It was reported in 1975 that most of the Guinean air force's aircraft were based at Conakry-Gbessia airport.

Due to the lack of X-Ray machines, customs officials typically inspect travellers' bags manually. All foreigners are required to have a valid Guinean visa and a vaccination card. The airport employees may take off the travel tags of your bags furnished at the beginning of your trip. Very few people speak English in the airport. Local residents attempting to find informal work as porters are available to assist with luggage in exchange for about 5000 GNF per bag.

The airport parking lot is also a popular destination for students preparing for exams, as it is one of the few places in the country which is freely accessible to the public and always illuminated by electric lamps.
