Oakland County International Airport is a county-owned public-use airport located in Waterford Township, Oakland County, Michigan, United States. The airport is five nautical miles (9 km) west of the central business district of Pontiac.

It is the sixth-busiest airport in the United States without scheduled passenger service. Charters carrying sports teams competing at The Palace of Auburn Hills nearby frequently use the airport. The airport was originally called Pontiac Municipal Airport when it opened in 1928 and became Oakland-Pontiac Airport later before adapting its current name.

The airport holds an open house every year, showing aircraft based at PTK, military aircraft and vintage aircraft. The Civil Air Patrol acts as security for the open house.
