Groton-New London Airport is a state-owned public-use airport located three miles (5 km) southeast of the central business district of Groton, a town in New London County, Connecticut, United States. It serves the southeastern Connecticut region, including the shoreline localities of Groton, New London, and Mystic.

Over the years, and usually no more than one at a time, various domestic airlines served the airport, including Pan Am Clipper Connection, NewAir and Pilgrim Airlines. Scheduled commercial passenger service was limited to small turboprop aircraft such as de Havilland Dash 8 and Beechcraft 1900. Eventually the airport became no longer a profitable destination, and US Airways Express, the last major carrier to serve the airport, terminated its GON-PHL service in 2004. Two charter airlines, however, do continue to shuttle passengers to and from the airport.

The airport has also been used by several presidents speaking at the commencement of the nearby US Coast Guard Academy.
