Tweed New Haven Airport (IATA: HVN, ICAO: KHVN, FAA LID: HVN) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) southeast of the central business district of New Haven, a city in New Haven County, Connecticut, United States. The airport property is partly in City of New Haven, which owns the airport, and partly in the Town of East Haven. It was formerly known as Tweed New Haven Regional Airport.
Tweed is one of two airports in Connecticut with air carrier service, the other being Bradley International Airport (BDL) in Windsor Locks. United Airlines is also listed as an air carrier serving New Haven, using the airport code ZVE for New Haven; however, United does not serve Tweed. Instead, ZVE designates flights to and from Newark Airport (EWR) linking to New Haven via Amtrak train service direct from Newark Airport to Union Station in downtown New Haven. US Airways is the only carrier that offers service at the airport.
