St. Catharines/Niagara District Airport, , is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada, on Niagara Stone Road (Regional Road 55) at Airport Road (Regional Road 90), just north of the Queen Elizabeth Way and east of the City of St. Catharines. The airport has no scheduled passenger services, despite being the closest sizeable Canadian airport to Niagara Falls.

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 general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.

The airport primarily serves general aviation (GA) aircraft, but it is not unusual to see chartered aircraft (turboprops and business jets) delivering passengers to waiting limousines for a ride to the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort or other local attractions. In the past, the airport has also hosted delivery aircraft bringing rush order parts for the nearby General Motors plants.

The airport is home base for the Niagara, Unit #11 of Ontario (CASARA). CARES Niagara is a charitable organization which promotes aviation safety and provides civilian voluntary search and rescue (SAR) service in a support role to the Canadian military.

It is also not unusual to see Canadian Forces search and rescue aircraft on the ramp refueling while on search and rescue or training missions in the region.

The Southern Ontario Gliding Centre (SOGC) of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets utilize the airport for spring and fall familiarization flights for the cadets.
