Jeremiah Denton Airport (FAA LID: 4R9), formerly Dauphin Island Airport, is a county-owned public-use airport in Mobile County, Alabama, United States.[1] It is just northwest of the central business district of Dauphin Island,[1] a town located on a barrier island. The airport is on Mobile Bay, west of the Aloe Bay Channel.[2]

This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015[3] and 2009–2013,[4] both of which categorized it as a general aviation facility. In 2017 the airfield was closed for a time to test Navy drone operations. [5]
