Narrandera Airport (also known as Leeton/Narrandera Airport) (IATA: NRAICAO: YNAR) is a small regional airport in the local government area of Narrandera in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia. The airport is located 4 nautical miles (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) northwest[1] of Narrandera along Irrigation Way. The airport services the towns of Leeton and Narrandera as it is located between the two towns.

The airport received $109,000 in funds for security upgrades in 2006.[2]

The aerodrome was acquired in 1940 as a station for the Royal Australian Air Force, during the Second World War, as part of the Empire Air Training Scheme as the No. 8 Elementary Flying Training School.[3] The station closed after the end of hostilities in 1945.
