Šiauliai International Airport (also known as Zokniai Airport, Lithuanian: Zoknių oro uostas) (IATA: SQQ, ICAO: EYSA) is located 7 km southeast of the city of Šiauliai, in northern Lithuania. It covers an area of 471 hectares.

The airport was one of the largest military airports in the former Soviet Union. In 1955 it was only one of six Soviet bases capable of handling the new Myasishchev M-4 bomber. It was home to the 53 APIB (53rd Fighter-Bomber Aviation Regiment) flying MiG-23 aircraft with the ML, MLD, and UB variants and the MiG-27. It was also home to the 196 VTAP (196th Military Transport Aviation Regiment) flying Il-76 aircraft . It was a base of the 117 OAP (117th Independent Aviation Regiment) flying An-12PPS aircraft . The Tupolev Tu-126 was based here between the 1960s and 1970s.

Lithuanian Air Force units, including Aviation Base and Air Force Armament and Equipment Repair Depot, are located at Šiauliai Airport since 1995.

Šiauliai is now home to the NATO Baltic Air Policing forward deployment, providing airspace security for the three new Baltic members of NATO.
