Grand Forks International Airport is a public airport located five miles (8 km) northwest of the central business district of Grand Forks, a city in Grand Forks County, North Dakota, United States. GFK has no scheduled passenger airline service out of the country but receives its international title (like many other airports) because it has customs service available for general aviation aircraft arriving from Canada and other countries.

The airport, sometimes called Mark Andrews International Airport after Mark Andrews, a former U.S. House Representative and U.S. Senator from North Dakota, is owned by the Grand Forks Regional Airport Authority and located on U.S. Highway 2, around four miles (6 km) west of Interstate 29, within city limits in a detached section of the city that is surrounded by Rye Township.

In 2009, the airport's FAA control tower was the 23rd busiest in the nation, with a total of 346,165 tower operations. Approximately 90% of all airport operations at GFK are flights operated by the University of North Dakota's John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences which is based on the field.
