Akron Fulton International Airport is a general aviation airport located in the city of Akron in Summit County, Ohio, United States. It is owned by the city of Akron.

Named for longtime manager Bain Ecarius "Shorty" Fulton and his son Bain J. "Bud" Fulton, it first opened in 1929 and has operated in several different capacities since then. Although the airport has only served general aviation for many years, it does technically have United States Customs facilities, and is therefore considered an international airport. The airport did have commercial scheduled airline service until the 1950s. It is now used for both cargo and private planes.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Akron Fulton is assigned AKR by the FAA and AKC by the IATA (which assigned AKR to Akure, Nigeria).

In 1985, the Akron Fulton Airport was recognized as the 3rd National Landmark of Soaring by the National Soaring Museum.
