Orange Walk Airport (now officially Alfredo Martinez Chan Pine Ridge Airstrip) (IATA: ORZ, ICAO: MZTH) is a public use airport 3 kilometres (2 mi) southwest of Orange Walk Town, Orange Walk District, Belize. The airport was also known as Tower Hill Airport.

The gravel airstrip was refurbished with asphalt in 2014.[3]

The Chetumal VOR-DME (Ident: CTM) is located 31.2 nautical miles (58 km) north-northeast of the airport. The Belize VOR-DME (Ident: BZE) is located 34.1 nautical miles (63 km) south-southeast of the airport.[4][5]

The original Orange Walk Airport was east of the town, but was closed sometime prior to 2001,[6] and is now part of a highway bypass.[7]
