Portage County Airport (ICAO: KPOVFAA LID: POV, formerly 29G),[1] also known as Portage County Regional Airport,[2] is a public use airport in Portage County, Ohio, United States. It is owned by the Portage County Airport Authority and located three nautical miles (6 km) north of Ravenna,[1] in Shalersville Township. This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[3]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned POV by the FAA,[1] but has no designation from the IATA[4] (which assigned POV to Prešov Airport in Prešov, Slovakia).[5][6] The airport's former FAA identifier was 29G.[7]
