Zielona Góra-Babimost Airport ( ) is a regional airport located within the greater Zielona Góra agglomeration (the so-called Lubusian Tri-city) in western Poland. It lies 10 km (6.2 mi) from Sulechów, or 35 km (21.7 mi) northwest of the Zielona Góra city centre.

The airport is the 11th busiest in Poland, or last among currently functioning with scheduled traffic. It has recently been taken over from the Polish Army by the regional authorities, but it is run by the state enterprise Porty Lotnicze (PPL), the operator of Warsaw's airport.

The airport is situated in the village of Kramsko, near the town of Babimost, 95 km (59 mi) west of Poznań (population 581,000), 90 km (55.9 mi) east from the German border, and 170 km (105.6 mi) from the center of Berlin.

The airport's catchment area consists of 3 million inhabitants of the Lubusz Land ( ) and western Greater Poland (Wielkopolska).

Land connections to Poznań (the largest city in the area) use the newly opened motorway (its junction lies 21 km (13 mi) northeast of the airport terminal), as well as the newly renovated railway line (Zbąszynek, an important rail terminus for the regional trains from Poznań, lies 10 km (6.2 mi) from the airport).
