Vir Savarkar International Airport or Port Blair Airport (IATA: IXZ, ICAO: VOPB) is an airport located 2 km (1.2 mi) south of Port Blair, on the Andaman Islands of India. It is named after the Indian freedom fighter Vir Savarkar.

An ILS (precision instrument landing system) is available for low visibility operations, but pilots are responsible to check with local authorities to verify the system is operational, prior to flight. There is a road that crosses the runway; traffic must be stopped for aircraft to take off, similar to the Gibraltar Airport.
