Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport (IATA: WDH, ICAO: FYWH) is the main international airport serving the Namibian capital city of Windhoek. Located 45 km (28 mi) east of the city, it is Namibia's leading airport with international connections and handled 672,582 passengers in 2007. In 2009, the airport handled around 680,000 passengers, just over 4% down on the previous year when over 710,000 passengers were processed. The airport is named after Herero leader Hosea Kutako.

During South African adminisitration, the airport was named J.G. Strijdom Airport, after the Nationalist Prime Minister of South Africa. The main runway 08/26 is one of the longest in Africa and the World, at 4,532 m (14,869 ft).

Few, if any, domestic flights pass through Hosea Kutako Airport as those are predominantly handled at the smaller Windhoek Eros Airport. Public buses connect both airports to each other and to downtown Windhoek.
