Francisco B. Reyes Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Francisco B. Reyes) (IATA: USU, ICAO: RPVV) is an airport serving the general area of Coron, located in the province of Palawan in the Philippines. It is also shared with the neighboring municipality of Busuanga. The airport is named after Francisco Reyes, a mayor of Coron during the Commonwealth era known for having donated the land that forms the current airport complex.

The airport is classified as a Class 2 principal (minor domestic) airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.

Francisco B. Reyes Airport was expanded in 2007, funded by a three million-dollar loan from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) in cooperation with the Department of Transportation and Communications. The expansion, which included the construction of a new terminal building and the completion of the airport's then-unfinished concrete runway, was inaugurated by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on November 10, 2008.
