Marana Regional Airport (IATA: AVWICAO: KAVQFAA LID: AVQ), also known as Marana Northwest Regional Airport or Avra Valley Airport, is a general aviation airport in Marana, Arizona, about 15 miles (24 km) northwest of Tucson.[1] In 1999, the airport was purchased from Pima County by the town of Marana.

According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007–2011, it is categorized as a reliever airport.[2] It is not served by any commercial airlines at this time.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Marana Regional Airport is assigned AVQ by the FAA and AVW by the IATA.[3]
