Vestmannaeyjar Airport ( ) is a two-runway airport on the island of Heimaey, in Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands), a small archipelago off the south coast of Iceland. It is also known as Westman Islands Airport.

The main carrier was Air Iceland, which flew multiple daily flights to Reykjavík Airport. However, due to unresolved dispute with local government regarding flight subsidizing, the carrier ended all scheduled activity on 3 August 2010. Vestmannaeyjar Airport is supplemented by private flights to Bakki Airport on the southern coast of Iceland, taking approximately seven minutes (depending on the weather) or by about 25 minute flight to Reykjavík Airport.
