Gaspé Airport, or Michel Pouliot Gaspé Airport , is located 3.5 NM west of Gaspé, Quebec, Canada. The airport is non-towered, but has a mandatory frequency linked remotely the flight service station (FSS) located in Mont-Joli. There are instrument approaches available for poor weather.

Both the city and airport are located in a valley that is orientated in a more or less east-west direction, with the eastern end open to the ocean and the western end terminating in the highlands. For this reason, most small (i.e. unpressurized) aircraft prefer to approach from the east, thereby avoiding the steep descent over the high hills to the west.
