Lincoln Airport , formerly known as Lincoln Municipal Airport, is a joint public/military use airport located four nautical miles (7 km) northwest of the central business district of Lincoln, a city in Lancaster County, Nebraska, United States. It is owned by the Lincoln Airport Authority.

It is the second-largest airport in the state of Nebraska, serving the Lincoln metropolitan area and much of southeastern Nebraska. The airport is located approximately four miles (6.4 km) northwest of downtown Lincoln, on land immediately north and west of Interstate 80.

The long landing strip is now designated as an emergency landing site for the Space Shuttle, though it has never been used in this way. The airport is also home to Duncan Aviation, a large family-owned aircraft maintenance and refurbishing company. Duncan Aviation has several hangars on the east side of the airport, as well as parts storage on the west side.
