Gainesville Regional Airport is a public airport located three miles (5 km) northeast of the central business district of Gainesville, a city in Alachua County, Florida, United States. The airport is owned by the City of Gainesville, FL and operated by the Gainesville-Alachua County Regional Airport Authority. It was formerly known as J.R. Alison Airport.

Within recent years, the Airport has undertaken and substantially completed several large-scale projects that include the refurbishment of its primary runway (11/29), piping of an open ditch parallel to that runway, and completion of Phase 1 of the Terminal Renovation project. Three passenger boarding bridges, covered walkways that connect the terminal building to the aircraft, have been installed, and the Authority has commissioned the design of Phase 2 of the Terminal Renovation. Eclipse Aviation, maker of the Eclipse 500, operated its first factory service center in Gainesville until the company declared bankruptcy in 2009.

The airport operates a control tower during daylight hours and is in Class D airspace during that time.
