Ćemovsko Polje Airport (Serbian Latin: Aerodrom „Ćemovsko Polje“, Cyrillic: Аеродром „Ћемовско поље“) is a small airport near Montenegrin capital of Podgorica. It once served as city's only airport, mainly for military use, and withstood heavy bombing during Bombing of Podgorica in World War II. It was open officially with a paved runway in 1994, and it is one of the four Montenegrin airports to feature paved runway.

Since Podgorica Airport was built, Ćemovsko Polje Airport caters to needs of general aviation, as its 800 meters long runway cannot serve larger aircraft. AeroClub's "Špiro Mugosa" and "Krila Podgorice" currently operates the airport, and organizes parachuting, gliding, and other air sports activities and training.
