Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport is the main international airport serving the Namibian capital city of Windhoek. Located 45 km (28 mi) east of the city, it is Namibia's primary airport with international connections and handled 672,582 passengers in 2007. In 2009, the airport handled around 680,000 passengers, just over 4% down on the previous year when over 710,000 passengers were processed. The airport is named after Herero leader Hosea Kutako.

During South African adminisitration, the airport used to be named J.G. Strijdom Airport, after the Nationalist Prime Minister of South Africa. The main runway 08/26 is 4532 m (2.8 mi) long.

Few, if any, domestic flights pass through Hosea Kutako Airport as those are predominantly handled at the smaller Windhoek Eros Airport.

Windhoek Hosea Kutako International Airport underwent a modernizing makeover in 2009. It has one terminal with one departure and one arrival hall.
