Lakeland Linder Regional Airport is a public airport located four miles (6 km) southwest of the central business district of Lakeland, a city in Polk County, Florida, United States. It is owned by the City of Lakeland.

The airport possesses a Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 139 operating certificate entitling it to conduct commercial passenger aircraft operations and the terminal facility opened in late 2001 was designed to enable it to conduct airline operations with minimal modifications. Scheduled commercial airline service returned to the airport in June 2011, when Direct Air began service to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Niagara Falls, New York and Springfield, Illinois.

Annually, in the March-April time frame, the airport is host to Sun 'n Fun, a six day Fly-in, airshow and aviation convention. It is the second largest such event in the United States after the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) annual "AirVenture" event each summer at Wittman Regional Airport (OSH) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Although originally begun by a local EAA chapter, Sun `n Fun is now an independent corporation and no longer affiliated with EAA.
