Medicine Hat Airport, (IATA: YXHICAO: CYXH), is located 2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) southwest of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Air Canada Express serves the airport daily from Calgary as well as Integra Air with direct service to Edmonton, Alberta.

During World War II the site was used as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) for No. 34 Service Flying Training School (SFTS). The SFTS was open from 8 April 1941 to 17 November 1944. In 1939, the Department of National Defence appropriated the Medicine Hat Exhibition and Stampede Grounds, which was also used as a Prisoner of War camp.
