Gjögur Airport is an airport serving the small population of the Árneshreppur district in the Westfjords of north-west Iceland, on the coast of Húnaflói bay. It is staffed part-time by an AFIS controller, and only opens for Flugfélag Ernir flights: in the winter these are twice a week.

Gjögur airport is very important to the local population: in winter, the airport is the only means of access to the entire district, as the access road is impassable. The government of Iceland requires these flights in order to supply the population with food and other goods, and provide passenger transport. Flugfélag Ernir is the only airline that flies here.

The airport has runway lights, PAPI lights and taxi lights. It has an NDB beacon approach, but this is only short range, eg it can be picked up from Hólmavík.
