Aghu, also known as Awyu or Djair (Dyair, Jair, Yair), is a Papuan language of Papua, Indonesia.

Ethnologue assigns separate ISO codes for Aghu/Jair, Jair, North Awyu/Jair, and Central Awyu. However, these have not been attested as separate languages (U. Amsterdam), and it is not clear that all correspond to Aghu.
