Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport Station is a Tri-Rail station in Dania Beach, Broward County, Florida, located just west of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The station is located at Gulfstream Way, just west of I-95's interchange with Griffin Road (State Road 818). Opened in 2001, the current station replaces the former Fort Lauderdale Airport station (sited 0.7 miles/1.1 km to the south, on Tigertail Avenue), which was in service for the first 12 years of Tri-Rail's operation (1989-2001).

When the Tri-Rail system was first under construction, the station was located directly west of the airport's main runway, west of and next to Interstate 95. However, concerns by FAA about the height of the platform when planes were on approach prevented the station from ever being opened and moved to the Tigertail Avenue location. Remnants of both defunct stations remain adjacent to the tracks.
