Catoca Airport is an airport in the Lunda Sul Province of Angola. It serves the Catoca diamond mine.

The runway is 26 kilometres (16 mi) north of the city of Saurimo, and is 17 nautical miles from the Saurimo VOR-DME (Ident: VSA), located on the Saurimo Airport.[3]

The runway had recently been asphalted by Fidens under contract to the Catoca Mine. The usable runway had been shortened slightly and receives twice weekly flights from Luanda by TAAG Angolan Airlines on a Monday and a Friday. While these flights are operated by TAAG, they are charter flights reserved for Catoca Mine employees only.
