Quad City International Airport (IATA: MLIICAO: KMLIFAA LID: MLI) is a public airport in Rock Island County, Illinois, three miles (5 km) south of Moline, partly in Blackhawk Township and partly in Coal Valley Township. In 2012 it was named "Illinois Primary Airport of the Year".

Quad City is the third-busiest commercial airport in Illinois behind Chicago's O'Hare and Midway International Airports. The international designation is for being an official port of entry and having a U.S. customs port of entry. A Foreign Trade Zone and U.S. Customs Office are located at the airport, enabling international inbound and outbound shipments. There are no commercial passenger flights to or from any international locations, but some private aircraft (e.g., those owned by Deere & Company) do make non-stop, international flights.
