Corrientes International Airport (IATA: CNQICAO: SARC) (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Corrientes), also known as Doctor Fernando Piragine Niveyro International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional Doctor Fernando Piragine Niveyro) is an airport in Corrientes Province, Argentina, serving the city of Corrientes, built in 1961 while the terminal was completed in 1964. A new terminal and a new control tower were constructed between 2009 and 2011. The old buildings were demolished.

It is also known as Aeropuerto de "Cambá Punta". It is usual to fly from Corrientes and return to Resistencia because both airports are really close to each other. The same is true with Sauce Viejo Airport (SFN – in Santa Fe City) and General Justo José de Urquiza Airport (PRA – in Paraná, Entre Ríos), which are 19 km (12 mi) apart.

It has a 1,400 square metres (15,000 sq ft) passenger terminal. Alternative from Corrientes, it is Resistencia International Airport, in Resistencia, Chaco, which is 16 km (10 mi) to the west.

Between April and July 2014, Corrientes Airport will be closed because of works at Runway 02/20. Daily flight AR1782/82 was rescheduled to Resistencia International Airport.This will handle 737-800 instead of 737-700 in August.
