Greymouth Airport (IATA: GMNICAO: NZGM) is a small, uncontrolled aerodrome located in the suburb of Blaketown, 1 Nautical mile (1.9 km) south of the Greymouth CBD on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

The aerodrome is operated by the Grey District Council and is available for general use without notice to the operator.

The most recent commercial flights in 2007 were operated by Air West Coast direct to Westport then to Christchurch or onto Wellington. These services have since been discontinued. Coast Air operated a daily De Haviland Twin Otter (20 seater) service to Christchurch and Nelson from 1986 to 1988. Today there is currently no scheduled flights using the airport. Charter flights can be arranged with Air West Coast to anywhere in New Zealand. One charter collects passengers off the tranz alpine express train at Greymouth station and fly them back to Christchurch over Mt Cook and the Glaciers.[1]
