Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport (IATA: JZHICAO: ZUJZ), also known as Jiuzhaigou Airport (simplified Chinese: 九寨沟机场; traditional Chinese: 九寨溝機場) and Jiuhuang Airport, is an airport in Songpan County, Sichuan province, China. This airport serves two major scenic places of interest in this area, namely Huanglong, 53 kilometres (33 mi) away, and Jiuzhaigou, 88 km (55 mi) away. It is 3,448 metres (11,312 ft) above sea level and is the third highest airport in China (after Qamdo and Lhasa).

Jiuzhai Huanglong Airport is about 240 km (150 mi) (40 minutes' flight) from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, an aviation hub of Southwest China. It started flights on September 28, 2003, and has one runway of length 3,200 m (10,500 ft) and width 60 m (200 ft).

Due to the elevation of 3,448 m (11,312 ft), some passengers may experience symptoms of altitude sickness. This should be taken into consideration when planning to fly into or out of Jiuzhai Huanglong airport. The first aid center at the airport has small canisters of oxygen and Tibetan herbal medicine for sale.
