Tulsa International Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located five miles (8 km) northeast of downtown Tulsa, a city in Tulsa County, Oklahoma, United States. It was originally named Tulsa Municipal Airport, when the city acquired it in 1929. It was given its current name in 1963.

The 138th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard is based at the co-located Tulsa Air National Guard Base.

The airport is the global maintenance headquarters for American Airlines.

During World War II, Air Force Plant No. 3 was built on the southeast side of the airport, and Douglas Aircraft manufactured several types of aircraft there. After the war, this facility was used by Douglas (later McDonnell Douglas) and Rockwell International (later Boeing) for aircraft manufacturing, modification, repair, and research. IC Bus Corporation now assembles school buses in part of this building.

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum is on the northwest side of the airport.
