Sawyer International Airport is a public airport located 17 mi (27.4 km) south of the central business district of Marquette, a city in Marquette County, Michigan, United States. The airport is publicly owned by Marquette County.

This commercial and general aviation airport is located near Gwinn, Michigan on a portion of the former K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base, which closed in September 1995. The airport opened for passenger service in September 1999, serving Marquette and the surrounding area. It replaced the former Marquette County Airport which closed the same year.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Sawyer International is assigned SAW by the FAA and MQT by the IATA (which had previously assigned SAW to Sabiha Gökçen International Airport in Istanbul, Turkey). The airport's ICAO identifier is KSAW.
