Kavieng Airport (IATA: KVG, ICAO: AYKV) is located in Kavieng, New Ireland, Papua New Guinea and is located approximately 1 km away from the town centre.

The airport was first built by the Japanese as a military airbase in 1942. After the end of the war, it was converted to civilian use, and now possesses a modern, though small terminal facility.

It is officially an international airport, but is yet to be used for regular commercial international flights.
