Hisar Airport (IATA: HSS, ICAO: VIHR), also Hisar Aviation Club or Hisar Flying Club, (IATA: HSS and ICAO: VIHR), is a public airport serving Hisar, Haryana, India. It is located 5 kilometres north-east from the city on National Highway 10.
The airport is about 1 km from the Guru Jambheshwar University of Science and Technology; 2 km from the Blue Bird Lake; 4 km from the bus station along the National Highway 10, 5 km from the town center & main market area; 6 km from the railway station; 167 km from the Delhi Airport; 180 km from the New Delhi Railway Station; and 235 km from the Chandigarh Airport.
In 1965, Hisar airfield, spread over 194 acres (79 ha), was built for the Hisar Aviation Club.  In 1999, Hisar Aviation Club was merged with Haryana Institute of Civil Aviation (HICA). The airport is managed by HICA, which provides flight training using light aircraft.
In 2011, the Government of Haryana invited Request for Qualification (RFQ) from commercial parties for the setting up of Integrated General Aviation hubs as public–private partnerships; with Hisar to be one of the airports to have a hub. Expansion plans entail aircraft maintenance and Fixed Based Operator facilities.
In August 2012, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation approved a state government plan to develop the airport to allow domestic airline services. Its 4,000 feet (1,219 m) runway will be extended to 6,000 feet (1,829 m), to accommodate turboprop aircraft such as the ATR 72 and jets such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. The airport's night flying equipment was also upgraded in 2012.
In December 2014, the newly elected Bharatiya Janata Party government said that, to reduce the air traffic congestion at Delhi, the Government of India had already commissioned a survey for upgrading Hisar airport (160 kilometres (99 mi) from Delhi) into an International airport; as Hisar is also a Counter Magnet City within the National Capital Region and the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor Project (DMIC).
