Evelio Javier Airport (Kinaray-a: Hurugpaan kang Evelio Javier, Hiligaynon: Hulugpaan sang Evelio Javier, Filipino: Paliparang Evelio Javier) (IATA: EUQ, ICAO: RPVS), also known as Antique Airport and San Jose Airport, is the only airport in the province of Antique in the Philippines. The airport is located in the provincial capital San Jose de Buenavista, and is classified as a Class 2 principal (minor domestic) airport by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.

The airport is named after Evelio Javier, a former governor of Antique and a vocal critic of former president Ferdinand Marcos. He was assassinated in 1986. This airport was partially renovated with the help of Senator Loren Legarda and Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao. The Airport Terminal Building and other Facilities is being planned for reconstruction to accommodate more passengers and planes.
