Alta Airport ( ) is the airport of Alta, Norway. It is located about 4 km (2.5 mi) northeast of the town center of Alta, near the community Elvebakken on the southern shore of the Altafjord. The airport has a single paved 2088 m (1.3 mi) runway. The government-owned Avinor is responsible for operations. With 334,132 passengers served in 2009 it is the busiest airport in Finnmark by passenger traffic.

The airport works as a semi-hub for operations in the SAS Group with many connections to regional airports in Finnmark. It is served with Boeing 737 aircraft to Oslo by Norwegian Air Shuttle and Scandinavian Airlines, and by the latter to Tromsø. Widerøe operates many of its regional services through Alta. The airport can handle non-Schengen flights in a designated section of the terminal building, although as of March 2010 no international flights to Alta Airport are yet in operation.
