Îles-de-la-Madeleine Airport, (IATA: YGRICAO: CYGR), is located on Havre aux Maisons island in the Magdalen Islands, Quebec, Canada. Although it is almost at sea level, nearby land rises significantly to the south, prohibiting circling approaches in that direction. Sea gulls are a frequent concern when landing at Îles-de-la-Madeleine.

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.[1]
