McClellan-Palomar Airport is a public airport located three miles (5 km) southeast of the central business district of Carlsbad, a city in San Diego County, California, United States. It is owned by the County of San Diego and serves the northern part of the county. The airport is mostly used for general aviation, and as of September 2009 United Express is the only commercial airline with regularly scheduled service to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) from Carlsbad McClellan-Palomar Airport. Previously American Eagle served McClellan-Palomar Airport to LAX, and US Airways Express had service to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), but those routes have been discontinued. It has basic amenities, including internet access, and has received major upgrades to the terminal over the past several years.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, McClellan-Palomar Airport is assigned CRQ by the FAA and CLD by the IATA (which assigned CRQ to Caravelas, Brazil). The airport's ICAO identifier is KCRQ.

The airport is named for Gerald McClellan, an aviator and civic leader in San Diego's North County area.
