This is a list of airports in Samoa, sorted by location.

Samoa, the Independent State of Samoa (formerly known as Western Samoa and German Samoa), is a country governing the western part of the Samoan Islands in the South Pacific Ocean. The country is located east of the international date line and south of the equator, about halfway between Hawai‘i and New Zealand in the Polynesian region of the Pacific Ocean. The total land area is 2934 km² (1133 sq mi), consisting of the two large islands of Upolu and Savaiʻi which account for 99% of the total land area, and eight small islets: three in the Apolima Strait (Manono Island, Apolima and Nu'ulopa), the four Aleipata Islands off the eastern end of Upolu (Nu'utele, Nu'ulua, Namua, and Fanuatapu), and one off the south coast of Upolu (Nu'usafe'e). The main island of Upolu is home to nearly three-quarters of Samoa's population, as well as the capital city of Apia.
