Marquette County Airport (ICAO: KMQTFAA LID: MQT) is a former airport in Negaunee, Michigan. After the closure of the nearby K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base, the airport was closed and facilities were transferred to Sawyer International Airport.

In 2006, the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community proposed moving its Ojibwa II casino from Chocolay Township to the airport site, where it would build a 135,000-square-foot (12,500 m2) facility.[1] The proposal was rejected by Governor Rick Snyder, unless a broader agreement could be reached.[2]
