Arctic Bay Airport, (IATA: YAB, ICAO: CYAB, TCLID: CJX7), is an airport located 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) southeast of Arctic Bay, Nunavut, Canada. Until January 12, 2010 Nanisivik Airport, about 25 km (16 mi) from Arctic Bay, was used for scheduled flights. On January 13, 2010, First Air transferred all air services to Arctic Bay's newly expanded airport with service to Iqaluit and Resolute Bay. Niore Iqalukjuak, mayor of Arctic Bay, said that the move would save community members $40.00 for the one way taxi ride. At the same time the Government of Nunavut said that the move would save $600,000 a year because of not having to keep the all-weather road clear.
In 2010 the runway, which at 1,500 ft (457 m) was the shortest in Nunavut. A new runway was built south of the old runway which now has the new airport terminal built on it and is 3,935 ft (1,199 m).
