Sultan Abdul Halim Airport (IATA: AOR, ICAO: WMKA) is an airport that serves Alor Setar, a city in the state of Kedah in Malaysia.

The airport, located in Kepala Batas, 13 km away from town, can handle up to 800,000 ppa. The new terminal is already operational by 5 May 2006 to cater for future traffic growth. The new terminal has the capacity to receive the Airbus 330 operations as the runway was extended from the previous 1,963 meters long and 45 meters wide to 2,745 meters long and 45 meters wide. In 2008, the airport handled 307,564 passengers with 17,705 aircraft movements.

The Royal Malaysian Air Force training division is also co-located and uses the same runway as the airport.

In the Hajj Season of 2008/2009, Malaysia Airlines planned to introduce hajj flights from Sultan Abdul Halim Airport to serve hajj pilgrims from Kedah, Perlis and southern Thailand instead of using Penang Airport.
