Eureka Airport (IATA: EUE[2][3]FAA LID: Ø5U) is a county owned, public use airport located six nautical miles (11 km) northwest of the central business district of Eureka, in Eureka County, Nevada, United States. It is owned by the County of Eureka.[1] The airport is located within and towards the southern end of the Diamond Valley.

It is also known as Eureka County Airport and in 2007 it was named Booth Bailey Field, honoring Mr. Booth Bailey, a Eureka native and founder of Diamond Aviation, the airport's fixed-base operator.[4][5][6]

The airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorizes it as a general aviation facility.[7]
