Jackson Hole Airport is a public airport located seven miles (11 km) north of the central business district of Jackson, a town in Teton County, Wyoming, United States. It is owned by the Jackson Hole Airport Board.

It is the only airport in the United States located inside a national park, in this case Grand Teton (The Provincetown Municipal Airport in Massachusetts is on land leased from the National Park Service, but it is not in a National Park). A large fraction of air travellers headed to Grand Teton National Park or nearby Yellowstone National Park and western Wyoming go through the airport. The airport at one time had an unusual terminal building resembling a pioneer log cabin which blended with the surrounding environment and served to attract visitors. Starting in 2009, a major $30 million terminal expansion project began. The design; however, still blends with the unique surroundings of the national park and Jackson Hole preservation area. The entrance from the outside is a wood walkway that heads to the main terminal building. The airport has 6 gates.
