Glen Innes Airport (IATA: GLIICAO: YGLI) is a small airport located 5 NM (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) northwest[1] of Glen Innes, New South Wales, Australia.

Unusually for a small town airport the runway is sealed and of a reasonable length (1,000 m (3,300 ft) plus), this runway was constructed around the Second World War as a possible northern base for the Brisbane Line in the case of Japanese invasion.
