Cambridge Airport (previously Marshall Airport Cambridge UK) is a small regional airport in South Cambridgeshire, England. It is located on the eastern outskirts of Cambridge, south of Newmarket Road and west of the village of Teversham, 1.5 NM from the centre of Cambridge and approximately 50 mi from London.

Opened in 1938, when it replaced the old airfield at Fen Ditton, the airport is owned and operated by Marshall Aerospace, a Cambridge-based company with many years' history servicing civilian and military contracts. The main building was designed by the architect Harold Tomlinson of the University of Cambridge and constructed in 1936 37.

Marshall of Cambridge Aerospace Limited has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P433) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction. Although the airport does not offer regular passenger services it is available for corporate and private use, and is home to four flying schools.

In October 2008, to coincide with the opening of the new Marshall Business Aviation Centre, the airport's name was changed from Cambridge City Airport to Marshall Airport Cambridge UK.

In 2008, total aircraft movements increased 9.07% over 2007, from 38,983 to 42,520.

In 2011 Cambridge Airport officially broke off from Marshalls, appointed a new director and changed its name back to Cambridge Airport. Its aim is to become a "hub for the east of England". The Passenger Terminal will be completely refurbished.
