Subic Bay International Airport (Filipino: Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Look ng Subic) or SBIA serves as a secondary airport and a main diversion airport of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It is also the airport serving the immediate area of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the general area of Olongapo City in the Philippines. This airport used to be the Naval Air Station Cubi Point of the United States Navy. Its airport terminal has 2 gates.

In January 2010, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Administrator and CEO Armand C. Arreza expressed interest in closing Subic Bay International Airport in favor of converting the area to a logistics hub. This was due to the closure of FedEx's delivery hub, which is located within the airport complex, and the planned expansion of the nearby Diosdado Macapagal International Airport.

Guam-based Concepts has declared its intent to set up a full service business jet center at Subic Bay International Airport, reviving hope for the long-term sustainability of the airport.

Spirit of Manila Airlines expressed that it will start operations at Subic Bay International Airport to start by August or September 2011 providing flights between Subic and Macau.
