Knox County Regional Airport is a public airport located the town of Owls Head, three miles (5 km) south of the central business district (CBD) of the city of Rockland, in Knox County, Maine, USA. The airport covers 538 acre (217.7 ha) and has two runways.

Knox County Regional Airport serves the residents of midcoast Maine with commercial and charter aviation services. It is also a major hub of freight and mail service to Maine's island communities including Matinicus, North Haven and Vinalhaven.

During the summer months, the airport is one of Maine's busiest, with significant private jet operations bringing visitors to the numerous summer colonies in the Penobscot Bay region. The influx in traffic in recent years prompted the implementation of a voluntary night curfew on arrivals and departures between 10:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Owls Head Transportation Museum is also situated at the airport on an older (abandoned) third runway. It has a museum of antique autos, aircraft, and engines. During the summer special event gatherings are held for enthusists.
