Dawson City Airport is located 8 NM east of Dawson City, Yukon, Canada, in the Klondike River valley, and is operated by the Yukon government. It has a terminal building and like most airports in its class, the runway is not paved. The gravel runway is 5006 ft long and at an elevation of 1215 ft. A number of studies have recommended moving the airport or realigning the runway as it is in a narrow mountain valley.

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 aircraft with no more than 15 passengers.
