Alamogordo-White Sands Regional Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located four nautical miles (7 km) southwest of the central business district of Alamogordo, a city in Otero County, New Mexico, United States. It was formerly known as Alamogordo Municipal Airport.

It is served by one commercial airline, with service subsidized by the Essential Air Service program. New Mexico Airlines offers scheduled passenger service, with flights to El Paso and Albuquerque.

The airport installed an 8-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array in November 2008, using a $100,000 grant from the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department. The system is estimated to save the airport $100 to $300 per month, and after 2012 when new buyback rate go into effect that amount may rise to $300 to $500 per month in electric costs savings.
