Corrientes International Airport ( ) is an airport in Corrientes Province, Argentina serving the city of Corrientes, built in 1961 while the terminal was completed in 1964. A new terminal was constructed between 2009 and 2011, and also a new control tower. The old buildings were demolished.

It is also known as Aeropuerto de "Camba Puntá". It is usual to fly from Corrientes and return to Resistencia, because both airports are really close to each other. The same happens with Sauce Viejo Airport (SFN - in Santa Fe City) and General Justo José de Urquiza Airport (PRA - in Paraná, Entre Ríos), which are 19 km (11.8 mi) apart.

It has a 1400 m2 (15069.5 sqft) passenger terminal. Alternative from Corrientes it is Resistencia International Airport, in Resistencia, Chaco, which is 16 km (9.9 mi) to the west.
