The No Commercial Airport at Whenuapai Airbase Party was a local political party in New Zealand which opposed the transformation of Auckland's Whenuapai airbase into a commercial airport.

The party was inspired by the success of the Whenuapai Airbase Action Group (Waag) in turning the fate of the airbase into a political issue during the 2007 local body elections.

The party applied to register a logo with the Electoral Commission on 21 April 2008.[1] The party however failed to apply for formal registration so was limited to its sole candidate at the 2008 election.

It ran a single electorate candidate in 2008 and received 238 electorate votes. It did not run in the 2011 election.
