St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport is a joint civil-military airport located in unincorporated Pinellas County, Florida, 6 mi (9.7 km) north of St. Petersburg, serving St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and the surrounding Tampa Bay Area in the USA.

While most scheduled commercial airline traffic in the Tampa Bay Area uses Tampa International Airport (TPA), ten miles (16 km) to the east, St. Petersburg-Clearwater remains a destination airport for low-cost and charter carriers, notably several from Canada. Once a focus city for Largo based Southeast Airlines, St. Petersburg/Clearwater now serves as a focus city for Las Vegas based carrier Allegiant Air. The airport also serves as the gateway airport to Pinellas County.

Because of its lesser pace of operations, PIE is frequently used instead of TPA as a destination airport by pilots of private planes and executive jets for access to the Tampa Bay Area.

The airport uses "Pie In The Sky" as an advertising slogan in reference to its three-letter IATA and FAA codes.
