Clark Regional Airport (ICAO: KJVYFAA LID: JVY), often referred to as the Clark County Airport, is a public airport five miles (8 km) north of the central business district of Jeffersonville, a city in Clark County, Indiana, United States. It is owned by the Clark County Board Aviation Commission.[1] The airport, located in town of Sellersburg, Indiana, is also seven miles (11 km) north of Louisville, Kentucky.

Although most U.S. airports that are assigned an IATA identifier use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Clark Regional Airport is assigned JVY by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA,[2] because IATA only assignes identifiers to important airports.[citation needed]
