Sanga-Sanga Airport (Filipino: Paliparan ng Sanga-Sanga) (IATA: SGS, ICAO: RPMN), also known as Tawi-Tawi Airport, is an airport serving the general area of Bongao, the capital of the province of Tawi-Tawi in the Philippines. 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. It is not an international airport, contrary to its classification by the Tawi-Tawi provincial government.

Currently, the airport runway is being extended to 1,930 meters through partnerships between the DOTC, the CAAP, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the regional government of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and the Tawi-Tawi provincial government. In addition, the runway will be widened to 30 meters. Along with the expansion of Jolo Airport in Sulu, the expansion of the runway is set to be completed by August 2009.

The new runway was inaugurated on August 17, 2009 by Ambassador Kristie Kenney and local officials.
