Mustique Airport (IATA: MQSICAO: TVSM) is a private airfield owned by the Mustique Company, and is located on Mustique island, part of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean Sea.

The airport has a short takeoff and landing (STOL) runway with a displaced threshold, thus limiting the aircraft types allowed to land. Single-engine light aircraft such as the Cessna 152, Cessna 172, and twin-engine light aircraft such as the Beechcraft King Air, the larger Beechcraft Super King Air or the well-known de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter can easily land there.

For pilots not familiar with STOL, displaced thresholds, steep gradients at each end and a hill at one end of the runway, Mustique Airport can be a difficult airport to operate from.

The airport has no radio-navigational aids.
