Ástor Piazzolla International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Mar del Plata "Ástor Piazzolla", also known as Mar del Plata Airport) (IATA: MDQ, ICAO: SAZM) is an airport serving Mar del Plata, an Atlantic coastal city in the Buenos Aires Province of Argentina.

The airport was named after Brigadier General Bartolomé de la Colina (es), one of the founders of the Argentine Air Force. In August 2008 it was renamed in honour of composer and musician Ástor Piazzolla, who was born in Mar del Plata.[6]

The airport covers an area of 436 hectares (1,080 acres)[2] and is operated by Aeropuertos Argentina 2000. The present terminal building was constructed in 1978 for the FIFA World Cup. In 1994 the terminal was expanded for the Pan American Games. Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 took over airport operation in October 1998.

The airport is on the northern edge of the city, 3 kilometres (2 mi) inland from the coast.[5] East approach and departure may be over the water. The Mar Del Plata VOR-DME (Ident: MDP) and non-directional beacon (Ident: MDP) are located on the field.[7][8]
