Roxas Airport (Hiligaynon: Hulugpaan sang Roxas, Tagalog: Paliparan ng Roxas) (IATA: RXS, ICAO: RPVR) is an airport serving the general area of Roxas City, the capital of the province of Capiz, in the Philippines. The airport is classified as a Class 1 principal airport, by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation 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.
