Vinnytsia International Airport (Ukrainian: Міжнародний Аеропорт «Вінниця» (Гавришівка)) (IATA: VIN, ICAO: UKWW) was an airport near the village of Havryshivka. It served for the city of Vinnytsia in the Vinnytsia region of Ukraine.

The resort was opened in 1983 and was used for local, interregional and later international routes. Regular flights were operated until 1999.

On March 25, 2018, UIA began operating regular flights between Kyiv's Boryspil Airport and Vinnytsia.[1]

The airport was destroyed on 6 March 2022 when it was hit by eight missiles during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[2]
