Kunming Wujiaba International Airport ( ) is an airport located in Kunming, Yunnan, People's Republic of China. The airport is located 4 km south-east of metropolitan Kunming. Originally built in 1923, the airport has been renovated numerous times into a modern facility.

Today, Kunming airport has become a gateway to China for many South-east Asian countries. In 2010, the airport handled 20,192,243 passengers, making it the 7th busiest airport in mainland China. It is also the 7th busiest and 8th busiest airport in terms of cargo traffic and aircraft movements, respectively.

Due to the fast expansion of the metropolitan area and limited land availability, the local government and airport authority will move all operations to a new airport, Kunming Changshui International Airport, currently under construction, by the end of 2011.
