Mukah Airport (IATA: MKM[2]ICAO: WBGK) is an airport in Mukah, a town in the state of Sarawak in Malaysia.

As of April 2009, the federal government allocated RM200 million for a new airport in Mukah. This new airport will replace the old one as it is only capable of handling helicopters, light aircraft and can barely cope with the newer ATR 72 turboprop aircraft of Malaysia Airlines' subsidiary, MASWings.

On April 16, 2014, the work on the new airport begins,[3] and it is expected to be completed in 2018.
