Central Nebraska Regional Airport is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of Grand Island, a city in Hall County, Nebraska, United States. It is owned by the Hall County Airport Authority and is served by one commercial airline, with service subsidized by the Essential Air Service program.

Air Midwest, operating as US Airways Express, commenced service on October 29, 2006, with two daily flights to Omaha Eppley Airfield and one daily flight to Kansas City International Airport. Air Midwest ended service in May 2008, and Island Air planned to take over service, but then backed out. Allegiant Air began commercial air service out of Grand Island to Las Vegas on September 4, 2008, along with Great Lakes' service to Kansas City. In June 2011, American Eagle will commence flying between GRI and Dallas/Ft. Worth.

Central Nebraska Regional Airport was selected to be the site of a new Chinook Helicopter Base. The Nebraska National Guard has been on site since 2004, with ground scheduled to be broken in 2006 and the base opening in 2008.

The airport was formerly known as Grand Island Army Airfield before it was closed.
