Coleman A. Young International Airport , also known as Coleman A. Young Municipal Airport, is a public use airport located five nautical miles (9 km) northeast of the central business district of Detroit, in Wayne County, Michigan, United States. It is owned by the City of Detroit and was formerly known as Detroit City Airport.

The airport was once served by Southwest Airlines and Chautauqua Airlines which left after less than one year of service. Spirit Airlines planned service to the airport using McDonnell-Douglas DC-9 aircraft in 1995, but the service never began. Pro Air, a commercial passenger airline, was based at the airport and grounded by the FAA due to poor maintenance performance. The airport currently has no scheduled passenger airline service.

The airport's passenger terminal is also operated by the US Customs department, which serves private and cargo airplanes.

The 53000 sqft (4923.9 m2) passenger terminal includes space for restaurants, retail concessions, car rental facilities, airline offices, baggage pick-up and claim areas, boarding areas and passenger lounges. The airport has three 1,000 space parking lots.
