Pohnpei International Airport is an airport located on Pohnpei (formerly Ponape), the main island of the State of Pohnpei and the capital of the Federated States of Micronesia.

The extension of the Pohnpei International Airport began in 2009, and it is anticipated that it will be completed in 2011. The Japanese Government has agreed to provide about US $29 million for the entire project. The project includes extending the runway by 228m and improving the terminal facilities and apron. Enhancements will help prevent problems such as when a 727 cargo jet overran the runway and the airport had to be closed for 6 days in May 2008.
