Nida Airport (ICAO: EYND) is a small regional airport, opened in 1967, located in Nida, in the western part of Lithuania, near the Baltic Sea and Klaipėda. It was one of the first airports in western Lithuania.

The airport's infrastructure allows it to handle medium and small sized aircraft, such as the Saab 2000 and Saab 340.

In 1998-2006 the runway surface, apron and taxiways were renovated (5 million LTL from the government of Lithuania). However, works were not finished yet, vicinity falling short of standards and aerodrome was closed for all traffic except helicopters.

After finally finishing the reconstruction, the airport has been officially reopened in June 18, 2016[1] for light airplanes (seating capacity up to four), gliders and helicopters. At that date the airport had no refueling facilities and was formally just an "airstrip" with the assigned code A 129.[2]
