Albina Airstrip (IATA: ABN, ICAO: SMBN) is an airport serving Albina, the capital of the Marowijne District of Suriname. It is one of the oldest airports in Suriname, in use since 1953, when the Piper Cub (PZ-NAC) of Kappel-van Eyck named "Colibri" landed there from Zorg en Hoop Airport.

The St Laurent du Maroni non-directional beacon (Ident: CW) is located 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of the runway, across the Maroni River in French Guiana.
