Teterboro Airport is a general aviation relief airport located in the Boroughs of Teterboro, Moonachie, and Hasbrouck Heights in Bergen County, New Jersey, United States. It is owned and operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The airport is 12 mi (19.3 km) from midtown Manhattan in the New Jersey Meadowlands, which makes it very popular for private and corporate aircraft.

The airport takes up almost all of Teterboro and consists of 827 acre (3.3 km2): 90 acre (0.4 km2) for aircraft hangar and offices, 408 acre (1.7 km2) for aeronautical use and runways, and 329 acre (1.3 km2) undeveloped. The airport has more than 1,137 employees, of whom more than 90% are full time.

In April 2009, the FAA reported that the airport had the third highest rate of wildlife strikes of any airport in the United States based on takeoffs and landings (43 per 100,000).

Teterboro is home to many private aviation charter companies that fly globally.
