Virgin Gorda Airport is an airport on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. The airport is owned and operated by the Government of the VI (UK). The government purchased the airport from Little Dix Bay Resort for $2.9 million in 2005. The runway at the airport was an unpaved sand and gravel airstrip for many years. The airport is served by Cape Air non-stop from San Juan.
In January, 2010 the airport was closed for major construction work. It reopened in December, 2010 as an Uncertificated Airport with Limitations and Restrictions put in place by the ASSI regulatory agency. It is currently restricted to a small handful of airlines that must be fully approved by both ASSI and the FAA to operate at the field.

Historically, Virgin Gorda was served in the past by American Eagle with this service being operated by Executive Airlines on behalf of American Airlines from San Juan (SJU). This regional air carrier became a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines and flew CASA 212-200 twin turboprop aircraft into the airport. Sunaire flying as Eastern Express〔http://www.twinotterarchive.com/DHC-6_269.html#N928MA_14061987〕〔http://www.twinotterarchive.com/DHC-6_211.html〕 on behalf of Eastern Airlines served Virgin Gorda as well. This wholly owned subsidiary of Metro Airlines operated de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter STOL (short take off and landing) turboprop aircraft.
Cape Air commenced non-stop service between Virgin Gorda and San Juan on February 15, 2014, and offers year-round service. Cape Air purchased a fleet of four Britten-Norman Islanders specifically to serve the short runways at Virgin Gorda, Culebra, PR and Block Island, RI. Cape Air's service at Virgin Gorda operates with the codeshare of United Airlines, in addition to their indigenous "9K" code.
