Raton Municipal Airport (IATA: RTN, ICAO: KRTN, FAA LID: RTN) (Crews Field) is a city owned, public airport 12 miles southwest of Raton, in Colfax County, New Mexico. The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 called it a general aviation facility.
Until around 1954 Continental Airlines stopped there, a DC-3 a day each way between Denver and Albuquerque, but Raton may not have seen an airliner since then.
