International Airport is a 1985 American made-for-television drama film starring Gil Gerard and Connie Sellecca. It was directed by Charles S. Dubin and Don Chaffey and executive produced by Aaron Spelling and Douglas S. Cramer.

It was called a "combination of Airport and The Love Boat."[1] It was a pilot for a proposed TV series which did not eventuate; however the film screened as a stand-alone movie.[2] This film marks the final appearance of Susan Oliver in her full-length movies, before her death in 1990.


A plane is headed toward Hawaii. It is believed a bomb is on board. Fuel is running low and the captain is not sure whether he has enough time to jettison the luggage. Airport manager David Montgomery has to decide whether to call the plane back or let it proceed to Hawaii.[3]
