Xewkija Heliport, or Gozo Heliport, is a small heliport on the island of Gozo in Malta, near the town of Xewkija. It has two 22 meter wide helipads, connected by asphalt, to form a small 174 meter long runway in the 10/28 direction. There used to be scheduled helicopter flights between Malta International Airport and Xewkija Heliport. These were started by Malta Air Charter in 1990, which ceased to operate in 2004. From March 2005 till October 2006 the flights were done by Helicópteros del Sureste. Currently, no scheduled flights take place from the heliport. However, Heli Link Malta offers flights between the heliport and Malta on request.

It is being examined if the current short runway could be expanded to allow fixed wing aircraft STOL to land at Xewkija.
