Morrilton Municipal Airport (ICAO: KBDQ, FAA LID: BDQ) is a public use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) southeast of the central business district of Morrilton, in Conway County, Arkansas, United States. It is owned by the City of Morrilton.[1]

This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation airport.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned BDQ by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned BDQ to Vadodara Airport in India).[4]
