Pine Ridge Airport (IATA: XPR, ICAO: KIEN, FAA LID: IEN) is a public use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) east of the central business district of Pine Ridge, in Oglala Lakota County, South Dakota, United States.[1] The airport is owned by the Oglala Sioux Tribe,[1] which has its tribal headquarters at Pine Ridge on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.[2] According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is categorized as a general aviation facility.[3]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned IEN by the FAA and XPR by the IATA.[4]
