This is a list of airports in Albania, grouped by type and sorted by location.

A number of regional airports have been renovated but cannot become functional for civil flights as per the 20 years and over monopoly that holds Tirana International Airport's shareholder company over Albanian airspace since 2005. Negotiations have been ongoing to revise the contract terms as to open airports for both domestic and external flights earlier than the above time frame.


Airport names shown in bold indicate the airport has scheduled service on commercial airlines.
