Taupo Airport is a small airport 8 km to the south of Taupo township on the eastern shores of Lake Taupo, New Zealand.

Scheduled flights are operated by Eagle Airways, a division of Air New Zealand, using Raytheon Beechcraft 1900D aircraft. Due to its close proximity to world renowned trout fishing, golf, hunting, skiing and luxury resorts Taupo Airport is becoming an increasingly popular destination for private jets.

A number of small charter and training operations are also based here along with maintenance providers and a large search and rescue facility. In addition there are three commercial tandem skydiving operators making Taupo Airport the busiest drop zone in New Zealand.
