Northern Maine Regional Airport at Presque Isle is a city-owned public-use airport located one nautical mile (2 km) northwest of the central business district of Presque Isle, a city in Aroostook County, Maine, United States. It serves the residents of Presque Isle, Maine, and a vast area of northern Maine and northwestern New Brunswick with commercial and charter aviation services. Airline service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program with daily service to Logan International Airport in Boston.

The airport is home to the second longest commercial runway in Maine (second only to Bangor International Airport), and third longest overall (after the Loring Commerce Centre, formerly Loring Air Force Base) and is often advertised as the "Gateway to Northern Maine."

The airport was once hub to Aroostook Airways, a commuter airline which operated in the 1970s, with service to several destinations throughout New England.
