Bardera Airport is located northeast of the city of Bardera, in Gedo, Somalia. The airport has no scheduled flights. As part of the UN mission to Somalia, United States corps of engineers conducted thorough measurements and surface hardening of the runway during the UN's intervention in the civil war in Somalia during 1993-1994.

There are proposals to make the airport viable for scheduled flights or cargo flights. Diaspora friends of Bardera city are planning flights from Bardera to Mecca for the Hajj season.

As people see the economic potential of Bardera District and Gedo region as a whole, there are plans to link the city of Bardera to Kismayo and Dubai. The only flights in and out of Bardera Airport are charter flights from Nairobi.
