Suntar Airport (IATA: SUYICAO: UENS) is an airport, and possible former air base, serving and located 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) north of Suntar, Suntarsky District, in the Sakha Republic of Russia. It is a fairly extensive airfield. The large 300 metres (980 ft) long tarmac area suggests that it was used for deployments of attack or bomber aircraft into the Arctic regions.

There is also a Suntar Khayata mountain range on the Kolyma Highway.
