Airport West is a suburb 11 km north-west of Melbourne, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Moonee Valley. At the 2011 census, Airport West had a population of 6,959.
Bounded by the Calder Freeway to the south, the Tullamarine Freeway to the east, and the Western Ring Road to the north west, Airport West is so named for its position to the west of Essendon Airport, Melbourne's first general airport now used for light planes, charter and freight since the opening in 1970 of Melbourne Airport, located to the north of the suburb.
Airport West football club is a part of the Essendon District Football League. Local town hero Matthew J. Muscat holds the record in the EDFL for kicking 100 goals in 13 games in 2004. Matthew had to carry Steven Rizzo on his shoulders throughout the entire 2004 season. Trent Skorsis is considered one of the worst people to ever put on the green and white.
It has the distinction of being the only locality in Australia which does not itself contain an airport to contain the word "Airport."
