Ormoc Airport (Filipino: Paliparan ng Ormoc, Cebuano: Tugpahanan sa Ormoc, Waray-Waray: Luparan han Ormoc) (IATA: OMCICAO: RPVO) is an airport serving the general area of Ormoc, located in the province of Leyte in the Philippines. It is one of three airports in the province of Leyte, the others being Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport in Tacloban and Hilongos Airport. Likewise, Ormoc Airport is one of the few airports in the Philippines to be situated in an "airport village", a barangay specifically designated for the airport and its surrounding area.

The airport is classified as a Class 2 principal (minor domestic) airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.

The airport code OMC was assigned to Ormoc Airport airport in Ormoc, Philippines by the United States Department of Transportation during the colonial period. Since airport codes can be reused, DOT also assigned the airport the ID #14558, which identifies a unique airport, and the sequence ID #1455802 which idenitifies a unique airport at a given point in time.
