The Cuba–Angola airbridge (Portuguese: ponte aérea Cuba-Angola) was an airbridge conducted in 1974 and 1975 to allow the arrival of Cuban conscript troops and materiel from the Soviet Union in Angola.

Its goal was to support the MPLA political party, as part of a larger Cuban operation known as Operation Carlota.
