Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, also commonly known as Winnipeg International Airport is an international airport in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is the eighth busiest airport in Canada by passenger traffic, serving just over 3.3 million passengers, and the 12th busiest airport by aircraft movements. It is a hub for Calm Air, Cargojet, Kivalliq Air, Perimeter Airlines and Purolator as well as a focus city for Air Canada Jazz and WestJet.

An important transportation hub for the province of Manitoba, Winnipeg International Airport is the only international airport within the province. It is a multi-modal facility and one of several airports in Canada that is fully operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The airport is operated by the Winnipeg Airport Authority as part of Transport Canada's National Airports System and is one of eight Canadian airports that has US Border Pre-clearance facilities.

The City of Winnipeg's unique and relatively isolated geographical location makes Winnipeg International Airport the primary international airport for a large area, and as such it is used as a gateway to a large area including the province of Manitoba, parts of neighboring provinces and territories Saskatchewan, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut, as well as parts of North Dakota and Minnesota in the United States. Along with flights to major cities across Canada, the USA, the Caribbean, Mexico and Iceland, non-stop flights to numerous small remote communities in Northern Manitoba, Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut are served from the airport.
