This is a list of airports in Illinois (a U.S. state), grouped by type and sorted by location. It contains all public-use and military airports in the state. Some private-use and former airports may be included where notable, such as airports which were previously public-use, those with commercial enplanements recorded by the FAA or airports assigned an IATA airport code.

This list contains the following information:

  • City served - The city generally associated with the airport. This is not always the actual location since some airports are located in smaller towns outside of the city they serve.
  • FAA - The location identifier assigned by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
  • IATA - The airport code assigned by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Those which do not match the FAA code are shown in bold.
  • ICAO - The location indicator assigned by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
  • Airport name - The official airport name. Those shown in bold indicate the airport has scheduled service on commercial airlines.
  • Role - One of four FAA airport categories, based on the 2009-2013 National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) Report:
    • P: Commercial Service - Primary are publicly owned airports which receive scheduled passenger service and have more than 10,000 passenger boardings each year. Each primary airport is sub-classified by the FAA as one of the following four "hub" types:
      • L: Large Hub which accounts for at least 1% of total U.S. passenger enplanements.
      • M: Medium Hub which accounts for between 0.25% and 1% of total U.S. passenger enplanements.
      • S: Small Hub which accounts for between 0.05% and 0.25% of total U.S. passenger enplanements.
      • N: Non-Hub which accounts for less than 0.05% of total U.S. passenger enplanements, but more than 10,000 annual enplanements
    • CS: Commercial Service - Non-Primary are publicly owned airports which receive scheduled passenger service and have at least 2,500 passenger boardings each year.
    • R: Reliever airports are designated by the FAA to relieve congestion at a large commercial service airport and to provide more general aviation access to the overall community.
    • GA: General Aviation airports are the largest single group of airports in the U.S. airport system.
  • Enpl. - The number of enplanements (commercial passenger boardings) that occurred at the airport in calendar year 2007, as per FAA records.
