Air mobility encompasses those activities that support the rapid movement of people, equipment and supplies to and from, or within a theater by air. Air assault, in which troops are brought directly into a battle area by means of air transport, is a subset of air mobility.

Activities that support the actual movements include air refueling, airfield acquisition repair or bare-base construction, fuel and other aviation-specific supply, airlift control, and air liaison to user organizations.
