Newnan–Coweta County Airport (ICAO: KCCOFAA LID: CCO) is a public use airport in Coweta County, Georgia, United States.[1] It is owned by the Newnan & Coweta County Airport Authority.[1] The airport is located 4 nautical miles (7 km; 5 mi) south of the central business district of Newnan, Georgia[2] and 33 nautical miles (61 km; 38 mi) southwest of Atlanta.[3] It is surrounded by US 29 and I-85 and 100 acres (0.40 km2) owned by the county.

The airport name appears in various formats, depending on the source. The FAA refers to it as both Newnan Coweta County Airport[1] and Newnan–Coweta County Airport.[4] The Georgia DOT airport directory adds a hyphen/dash for Newnan–Coweta County Airport.[5] The City of Newnan's web site drops "County" from the name, resulting in Newnan–Coweta Airport.[6] Coweta County's web site drops both "County" and the hyphen/dash, for Newnan Coweta Airport[7] and also has a photo of a sign at the airport bearing that name.

It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[8]
