Puerto Cabezas Airport (IATA: PUZ, ICAO: MNPC) is an airport that serves Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua located on Nicaragua's Atlantic Coast in the North Atlantic Autonomous Region (RAAN), approximately an hour from Managua by aircraft. Operated by the Empresa Administradora de Aeropuertos Internacionales (EAAI), it mainly serves the city of Puerto Cabezas, also known as Bilwi Airport, located close to the far northeast corner of the country. Its coordinates are: N 14 02' 45", W 083 22' 00". It has an asphalted runway, 2,500 meters long, suitable for various aircraft. This terminal currently services daily regular flights by domestic airline La Costeña and Atlantic Airlines (which has discontinued its operations) as well as for charter flights (air taxis) to Managua and other air terminals on the Atlantic Coast. The terminal operates during daytime only.

The Airport Management Authority has drawn up conceptual plans for improving the paved areas, taxiways, ramps and an air terminal in Puerto Cabezas.

The new air terminal has a total area of 477 m² and a 2,400 m² parking lot for 30 vehicles. The terminal facilities are modern and air-conditioned. Immigration and customs services are also provided, but must be coordinated by respective authorities.

The airport is approximately one kilometre from the city center, and there are taxis and other forms of transportation available.
