Santa Barbara Airport , also known as Santa Barbara Municipal Airport, is a public airport located 7 mi (11.3 km) west of downtown Santa Barbara, California, United States.

The airport is adjacent to the University of California, Santa Barbara and the city of Goleta. However, the land that the airport sits on was annexed to the city of Santa Barbara by a 7 mi (11.3 km) long, 300 ft (91.4 m) wide corridor, most of which lies under the Pacific Ocean. This a shoestring annexation. Much of the airport is between 10 and 15 feet above sea level, and it is bordered by the wetland area known as the Goleta Slough.

Five airlines serve the Airport as of June 2011 with more than 30 daily departures to five U.S. cities (see below). In 2006, more than 850,000 passengers used the airport. It is also a popular training airport. The field is home to three flight schools, Above All Aviation, flight school and FAA approved Aerial Scenic Tour Facility, Red Baron Aviation, an FAA certified test center and Cessna Pilot Center, as well as Spitfire Aviation.
