Athens-Ben Epps Airport is a county-owned public-use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) east of the central business district of Athens, in Clarke County, Georgia, United States. It is mostly used for general aviation. The airport is named after Ben T. Epps, the first aviator in the state of Georgia, who opened the airport in 1917.

Until May 23, 2008, the airport was served by twice-daily flights to Charlotte on Air Midwest operating as US Airways Express. Georgia Skies is now the sole airline providing scheduled service to the airport, with daily flights to Atlanta.

There is also a flight school based at the airport (Falcon Aviation Academy).
