Cobar Airport (IATA: CAZICAO: YCBA) is an airport located 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) southwest[1] of Cobar, a town in New South Wales, Australia.

The airport formerly had scheduled passenger service provided by Regional Express Airlines, but as of December 2008 the airline cancelled all flights into and from Cobar Airport.

Canberra-based Brindabella Airlines announced a non-stop daily service between Sydney and Cobar, which commenced 24 September 2010. The airline used a 19-seater Metroliner aircraft on this route, over a four-month trial period. They were the only remaining passenger airline to serve the airport before going into receivership in December 2013.

Regional Express Airlines started Regular Public Transport air services between Cobar and Dubbo on 31 August 2015. They use an 18-seat Beech 1900D aircraft for this route, the same one used between Dubbo and Sydney. [2]


The airport is 724 ft (221 m) above mean sea level.[1] It has two runways: 05/23 with an asphalt surface measuring 1,519 by 30 metres (4,984 ft × 98 ft) and 17/35 with a clay surface measuring 1,221 by 30 metres (4,006 ft × 98 ft).[1]
