Tokmok Airport (Kyrgyz: Токмок аэропорту, Russian: Токмакский аэропорт) (IATA: none (ТКМ), ICAO: UAFF) is an airport outside Tokmok, a town in the Chuy Region (oblast) of Kyrgyzstan. The Russian IATA code for Tokmok Airport is ТКМ.[2]

Tokmok Airport started its operations in the 1950s as a reserve landing strip where aircraft were diverted from the then Frunze Airport during bad weather conditions. The current runway and terminal were built in the 1970s. The airport has no instrument landing facilities and operates only during daylight hours.

Tokmok Airport is currently not in use by commercial airlines. However, it still serves as a reserve airport in Chuy Valley.
