Lihue Airport is a state-owned public-use airport located in the Līhu e CDP on the southeast coast of the island of Kaua i in Kauai County, Hawai i, United States, two nautical miles east of the center of the CDP.

The airport does not serve as a hub for any airline carrier. Numerous inter-island flights are available daily. During the 1970s, United Airlines used Douglas DC-8's between Los Angeles and Lihue. American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and US Airways all utilize Boeing 757-200’s between Lihue and their mainland destinations. Alaska Airlines and WestJet utilize Next Generation Boeing 737-800’s between Lihue and their mainland destinations; while Hawaiian Airlines uses Boeing 717-200’s between Lihue and Honolulu. The airport's runway can handle planes up to and including the size of a DC-10. The airport is mostly un-walled, and the check in is completely outside.

The airport is the primary gateway to Kauai for visitors (especially tourists), and has several rental car facilities. Two movies have filmed scenes at the Lihue Airport. "Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Six Days Seven Nights".
