Nanisivik Airport was located 8 NM south of Nanisivik, Nunavut, Canada, and was operated by the Government of Nunavut. Although Nanisivik Mine closed in September 2002 the airport was in operation until 2011 and served the community of Arctic Bay. This was due to the small size of Arctic Bay Airport. However, on January 13, 2011, First Air transferred all scheduled air services to Arctic Bay's newly expanded airport.

The airport was about 19 km directly southeast of Arctic Bay but the road between them is 32 km and a one way taxi fare was $40.00.
