San Salvador Airport (IATA: ZSAICAO: MYSM), also known as Cockburn Town Airport, is an airport in San Salvador, Bahamas.

San Salvador International Airport is one of the few airports in the Bahamas that has Instrument rating landing for airplanes, and as a result aircraft can now land at ZSA after official sunset (with local civil aviation permission).
