Anoka County–Blaine Airport (ICAO: KANEFAA LID: ANE), also known as Janes Field, is a public use airport in Anoka County, Minnesota, United States.[1] Owned by Metropolitan Airports Commission, it is 10 nautical miles (19 km) north of the central business district of Minneapolis.[1] The airport is located in the city of Blaine.

This facility is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation reliever airport.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned ANE by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned ANE to Marcé Airport near Angers, France).[4]
