Albury Airport is a regional airport located near Albury, New South Wales, Australia. The airport also serves Albury's adjacent sister city of Wodonga, Victoria.

The passenger terminal has recently been extended to incorporate new security screening requirements and to cater for the increased number of flights. Ths terminal redevelopment was opened on 23 October 2009. The airport also hosts the official weather station for Albury-Wodonga.

The airport is serviced twice daily by Virgin Australia who utilise 78-seat Embraer 170s to Sydney-they are the only airline to operate jet services to the airport; QantasLink who utilise a combination of 50 seat Dash 8-300s and 72 seat Dash 8-400s to Sydney; Regional Express (REX) who utilise 36 seat Saab 340s on services to Sydney and Melbourne and Brindabella Airlines who utilise 19 seat Metroliners to Canberra.

Virgin Australia launched services to Albury on 5 February 2008 (as Virgin Blue) with double-daily Embraer 170 services-one of its first new ports served by the aircraft. They were the first (and still are the only) airline to operate jet services to the airport. Since the launch of services, fares to and from the airport have been reduced significantly. The airline has said it will launch new routes and more services out of Albury should a need be apparent, yet as of April 2010, no new services have been launched. Following the launch of the service, the airline put 1,000 seats on the route on sale for 1 cent-the cheapest fare ever offered into the airport.
