Trent Lott International Airport (IATA: PGL, ICAO: KPQL, FAA LID: PQL) is a county-owned public-use airport located six miles (10 km) north of the central business district of Pascagoula, a city in Jackson County, Mississippi, United States.[1] The airport is named for Trent Lott, the United States Senator from Mississippi.

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Trent Lott International Airport is assigned PQL by the FAA and PGL by the IATA.[2] PGL was formerly assigned to Jackson County Airport in Pascagoula which closed sometime between 1982 and 1989.[3][4]

DayJet provided an on-demand jet air taxi service from this airport to Jacksonville, Lakeland, Tallahassee, Pensacola, Gainesville, Boca Raton, Opa-Locka/Miami Dade County, Naples, Sarasota/Bradenton, Savannah, Macon, and Montgomery; this service ended in September 2008.
