Havre City–County Airport (IATA: HVR, ICAO: KHVR, FAA LID: HVR) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) west of the central business district of Havre, a city in Hill County, Montana, United States. It is owned by the City of Havre and Hill County.[1] The airport is served by one commercial airline, subsidized by the Essential Air Service program. Per the Bureau of Statistics Havre was the least used airport in the Continental United States flying around 5000 passengers in the year ending 2022.

As per the Federal Aviation Administration, this airport had 180 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008,[2] 744 in 2009, and 961 in 2010.[3] The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a general aviation airport (the commercial service category requires 2,500 enplanements per year, and Havre does not have that).[4]

Scheduled air service temporarily ceased on March 8, 2008, when Big Sky Airlines ended operations in bankruptcy. Great Lakes Airlines was given United States Department of Transportation approval to take over Essential Air Service (EAS)[5] and flights began in 2009. The airport is now served by Cape Air under EAS contract.
