Ampara Airport (Sinhala: අම්පාර ගුවන්තොටුපළ, Tamil: அம்பாறை விமான நிலையம்) (IATA: ADP, ICAO: VCCG) is an air force base and domestic airport in Gal Oya in south eastern Sri Lanka. Located approximately 7 km (4.3 mi) north west of the town of Ampara, the airport is also known as Gal Oya Airport and SLAF Ampara.
An air strip in Gal Oya near Uhana was built in the 1950s by the Gal Oya Development Board. A Sri Lanka Air Force detachment from SLAF Katunayake moved onto the air strip on 19 December 1989. The Regimental Training Center opened at the base in July 2000.
