Marion County Airport (ICAO: KMAO, FAA LID: MAO) is a county-owned, public-use airport in Marion County, South Carolina, United States.[1] It is located three nautical miles (6 km) east of the central business district of Marion, South Carolina.[1] This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned MAO by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned MAO to Eduardo Gomes International Airport in Manaus, Amazonas, Brazil).[4][5]

For the 12-month period ending March 17, 2011, the airport had 6,000 aircraft operations, an average of 16 per day: 98% general aviation and 2% military. At that time there were 9 aircraft based at this airport: 89% single-engine and 11% multi-engine.[1]
