Ellington Airport (ICAO: KLUG, FAA LID: LUG) is a city-owned public-use airport located three miles (5 km) north of the central business district of Lewisburg, a city in Marshall County, Tennessee, United States.[1]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Ellington Airport is assigned LUG by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned LUG to Agno Airport in Lugano, Switzerland[3]).
