Evelio Javier Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Evelio Javier) , also known as Antique Airport and San Jose Airport, is the only airport serving the province of Antique in the Philippines. The airport is located in the provincial capital San Jose, and is classified as a secondary, or a minor commercial domestic airport, by the Air Transportation Office, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.

The airport is named after Evelio Javier, a former governor of Antique and a vocal critic of former president Ferdinand Marcos. He was brutally assassinated in the early 1980s.
