Wayne Executive Jetport (ICAO: KGWWFAA LID: GWW) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) north of the central business district of Goldsboro, a city in Wayne County, North Carolina, United States. The airport is owned by Wayne County.[1] It was formerly known as Goldsboro-Wayne Municipal Airport, when it was owned by both City of Goldsboro and Wayne County.[2]

[3] Although GWW is not currently used by the IATA,[4] it was previously assigned to the former RAF Gatow in Berlin, Germany.[5]
