Yellowknife Airport (IATA: YZFICAO: CYZF) is located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. The airport is part of the National Airports System, and is operated by the Government of the Northwest Territories. The airport has regular scheduled passenger service as well as a number of freight services. In 2007, the terminal handled 527,000 passengers.[5]

In 2008 the airport's passenger terminal underwent an expansion to the departure/check in section, roughly doubling the size of the terminal.[6] The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.[2]

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) "G" Division maintains a hangar for its air section just south of the passenger terminal. It is adjacent to a hangar used by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) to house the CC-138 Twin Otter and other utility aircraft operated by 440 Squadron, a subsidiary of 17 Wing.

Canadian NORAD Region Forward Operating Location Yellowknife is located south-west of the airstrip. It was built for forward deployment of the CF-18 Hornet in times of conflict. It also has a CC-138 permanently based at the airport for search and rescue missions.
