Kish International Airport (IATA: KIHICAO: OIBK) (Persian: فرودگاه بین المللی کیش‎‎) is an international airport on Kish Island, Iran.

It serves as the entry point for the hundreds of thousands of tourists who come to Kish Island. The airport grants 14-day visa-free entry foreign citizens who enter from a foreign country under a different scheme from that of mainland Iran.

Air France considered Kish as a destination to be served from Paris by a sub-fleet of longhaul Airbus A319s to serve Iran's oil and gas industry. However the service never started.

Prior to the Iranian Revolution, Iran had an outstanding order for two Concorde aircraft. These aircraft were supposed to be used on Kish-Paris and Kish-London routes to serve the luxury tourism market that Kish was supposed to serve.
