Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport , also known as Lovell Field, is a public airport located five miles (8 km) east of the central business district of Chattanooga, a city in Hamilton County, Tennessee, United States. The airport is owned and operated by the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport Authority. It is a Class C airport serviced by Chattanooga Approach.

Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport has a single concourse. Commercial service is provided by connection carriers for several major airlines. General aviation is serviced by TAC Air FBO. The general aviation ramp is split into two locations, with one on the South side of the main terminal, and the other to the North. The locations are respectively referred to as "TAC Air North" and "TAC Air South." General aviation can find service at either location, although business jets are preferred at North, and military and other miscellaneous traffic is preferred at South. In August 2011, Wilson Air Center opened up a facility on the west side of the field.

Currently, a flight from Chattanooga to Atlanta can take 17 minutes (from wheels up to wheels down) flying on a Canadair Regional Jet (operated by Delta Connection). When flight operations in Atlanta are interrupted, Chattanooga is one of the first airports to receive diversions.

It has been proposed that a new high-speed rail line be constructed from the airport to MARTA in metro Atlanta, so that it could easily serve as Atlanta's second airport.

Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport was home to the 241st Engineering Squadron of the Tennessee Air National Guard.
