CNN Airport is an American television network. Owned and operated by WarnerMedia, it is a special version of CNN that only plays in United States airports. The network broadcasts news, entertainment, stock market updates, weather, and travel news to 58 airports across the United States.[1] CNN pays airports to show the channel exclusively on their monitors.[2]

CNN Airport's 24-hour schedule is described as roughly 16% news, 19% live sports, 24% lifestyle, 24% travel, and 10% for custom messages from airports if they wish to use the timeslot.[3]

On January 12, 2021, CNN's president Jeffrey Zucker announced that the network would be closed by the end of March.[4]
