Naha Airport (那覇空港 Naha Kūkō) (IATA: OKA, ICAO: ROAH) is a second class airport located 4 km (2.5 mi) west of the city office in Naha, Okinawa.

The primary air terminal for passengers and freight traveling to and from Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, the airport handles international traffic to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and China. Japan's fifth largest airport, it also carries domestic flights to Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) and many other cities on Japan's four main islands. Naha is also a hub for service to other locations in Okinawa, including Ishigaki Airport. In all, flights connect Naha to more than 30 destinations. Its single 3,000 m (9,843 ft) runway handles in excess of 150 flights daily. The Governor of Okinawa, Hirokazu Nakaima, has expressed his interest to build a second runway to accommodate flights, to be operational by 2015.

The basic and detailed design engineering works in addition to the later construction management phase of the main passenger terminal were awarded in the 1990's in part to the Japan Branch of the American design-build engineering company, The Austin Company, which joined Japanese firms in a joint venture design consortium.

The Okinawa Monorail carries passengers from Naha-kūkō Station to the center of Naha, and to the terminal at Shuri Station, which is closest to Shuri Castle. In addition, bus service is available to many parts of Okinawa Island. Extensive parking lots are available as well.

The airport is also home to Naha Air Base.

Naha Airport served 14,495,054 passengers in FY2006.
