Corfu International Airport, "Ioannis Kapodistrias" (Greek: Κρατικός Αερολιμένας Κέρκυρας, "Ιωάννης Καποδίστριας") or Ioannis Kapodistrias (Capodistrias) International Airport (IATA: CFUICAO: LGKR) is an airport on the Greek island of Corfu at Kerkyra, serving both scheduled and charter flights from European cities. Air traffic peaks during the summer season, between April and October.

The Ioannis Kapodistrias International Airport, named after Ioannis Kapodistrias distinguished Corfiot European diplomat and first Governor of Greece, is located around 3 kilometres south of Corfu Town, half a kilometre north of Pontikonisi. The approach and landing, in a northeasterly direction, afford the flying passengers a spectacular aerial view of Pontikonisi and Vlaherna Monastery as well as the hills of Kanoni as the runway used for landing is actually a few hundred meters away from these landmarks.

The airport offers domestic flights with Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines, but the vast majority of traffic in the summer season is charter flights for holiday makers.

The majority of the charter traffic arrives on Mondays and Fridays, for the sake of tranquility during the rest of the week, since the airport is on the outskirts of Corfu Town itself, and to coincide with the change-over days for holiday apartment rentals.

There is a taxi rank and bus stop outside the terminal connecting the airport with all parts of the island.
