Stepanavan Airport (ICAO: UDLS) is a civil airport serving the city of Stepanavan and the province of Lori, in the country of Armenia. It is located 6 km (3.7 mi) northwest of the center of Stepanavan.[1][2]

In 2014, reconstruction of the administrative buildings of "Stepanavan" Airport JSC and Kapan airport included replacing fencing and renovation of the runway of the airports.[3] The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Armenia will use the airport to fight wildfires. Talks are currently underway with the Russian government about purchasing several fire-fighting aircraft; most probably Beriev Be-200 aircraft. It is possible that in the future the Armenian Air Force might relocate some aircraft here as well. [4]
