Las Cruces International Airport is an international airport located 8 miles west of the city center of Las Cruces, New Mexico, on a Mesa overlooking the Mesilla Valley. The airport was the major hub for Zia Airlines in the 1970s and early 1980s. There have been no scheduled passenger flights to this airport since Westward Airways ceased operations on July 25, 2005. The airport is the home base for 135 aircraft, and sees an average of 209 flight operations daily. The airport is used by general aviation, the United States government, New Mexico State University, private charters and the local CAP squadron. Should an airline desire to restore scheduled air service, the field retains a passenger terminal. Most Las Crucens wanting to travel by air either drive or take shuttle buses to El Paso International Airport or Albuquerque International Sunport.

The airport features two fixed base operators, Southwest Aviation and Adventure Aviation, to provide flight instruction services, aircraft fuel, and facilities to handle corporate aircraft and private charters. In addition, Adventure Aviation features a restaurant open to the general public, Crosswinds Grill.
