Enrique Adolfo Jiménez Airport ( _es. Aeropuerto Enrique Adolfo Jiménez) Airport codes|ONX|MPEJ is a commercial airport located in Colón, Panama, offering scheduled airline flights to the national capital, Panama City, and to other destinations. Constructed in the then-Panama Canal Zone as France Airfield, it was renamed for Enrique Adolfo Jiménez, who served as Panmanian president from 1945 to 1948.

The airport was formerly served by Boeing 307 Stratoliners and other early airliners flying Pan Am routes from Miami to Buenos Aires, Argentina via Havana, Cuba and Kingston, Jamaica into Cristobal and Colón, then continuing south via Lima, Peru, into Buenos Aires. Being located near the midpoint of this route and at the point where it intersected the Panama Canal made this location a useful one for north-south airline services.

In 1994, this airport was the departure point for Alas Chiricanas Flight 00901, later downed by terrorists.
