Baker Municipal Airport (ICAO: KBHKFAA LID: BHK) is a public-use airport located one nautical mile (1.15 mi, 1.85 km) southeast of the central business district of Baker, a city in Fallon County, Montana, United States. The airport is owned by Baker City and Fallon County.[1] It is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned BHK by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned BHK to Bukhara Airport in Bukhara, Uzbekistan[4]).
