Owensboro-Daviess County Airport is a public airport located three miles (5 km) southwest of the central business district of Owensboro, a city in Daviess County, Kentucky, United States. It is owned by both the city and county. The airport is mostly used for general aviation and is served by one commercial airline.

As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 4,680 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2006, up from 3,611 enplanements in 2005. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007 2011, it was classified as commercial service - non-primary because it had between 2,500 and 10,000 passenger boardings per year.

Scheduled commercial service was subsidized by the Essential Air Service program. RegionsAir provided flights to St. Louis until it ceased operations in March 2007. The next EAS contract was awarded to Big Sky Airlines, operating as Delta Connection, with service to Cincinnati scheduled to begin in June 2007. Big Sky began service in November 2007 and abruptly ended operations here in January 2008. Great Lakes Aviation was awarded a contract but ultimately cancelled. On February 19, 2009, Allegiant Air began service from Owensboro to Orlando Sanford International Airport. Pacific Wings has been awarded the most recent Essential Air Service contract to Nashville.
