Moruya Airport (IATA: MYAICAO: YMRY) is an airport located 3.5 NM (6.5 km; 4.0 mi) northeast[1] of Moruya, New South Wales, Australia.

History[edit]

The airport was established in 1942 by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as RAAF Base Moruya. Three runways were laid out adjacent to the mouth of the Moruya River. Moruya was home to No. 11 Operational Base Unit to provide support for RAAF aircraft utilising the airfield.

In 2001, Moruya Airport officially established a Skydiving Centre.

Expansion[edit]

Eurobodalla Shire Council is planning to enlarge the terminal, increase the size of the apron, extend the runway and build a parallel taxiway.[2][3]
