Ohkay Owingeh Airport is a public use airport located in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, United States. It is three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of the city of Española. The airport is owned by the Ohkay Owingeh Tribal Council.

The airport was known as the San Juan Pueblo Airport until 2008. The name change occurred due to the San Juan Pueblo returning to its pre-Spanish name in November 2005. The Tewa name Ohkay Owingeh means "place of the strong people".
