Lic. Jesús Terán Peredo International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional Lic. Jesús Terán Peredo, IATA: AGUICAO: MMAS), also known as Aguascalientes International Airport, serves Aguascalientes, the capital city of the state of Aguascalientes in Mexico. It handles national and international air traffic of the city of Aguascalientes. The airport was named after Jesús Terán Peredo, an Aguascalientes governor from 1855 to 1857, and one of the first persons to recognize Benito Juárez as Mexico's president.

Its commercial facilities consist on a sole terminal, with four contact positions plus three remotes used by non-mainline carriers. The terminal has been recently[when?] remodeled and expanded to meet the growing demand. The airport is now able to handle 1.5 million passengers, although it only handled 0.4 million during 2012. Several amenities have been recently opened, such as the introduction of a new restaurant on the upper level of the airport, new check-in counters, among many others. The airport has become one of the most important terminals in the Central-West region of Mexico.
