Laurens County Airport (ICAO: KLUX, FAA LID: LUX, formerly 34A) is a county-owned public-use airport in Laurens County, South Carolina, United States. It is located three nautical miles (6 km) east of the central business district of Laurens, South Carolina.[1]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned LUX by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned LUX to Findel Airport in Luxembourg[3]).
