Greater Sudbury Airport, or Sudbury Airport, is an airport in the city of Greater Subdury in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located 20 kilometres northeast of the downtown area. Sudbury Airport is classified as an airport of entry and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. The CBS officers can only handle general aviation aircraft with up to 15 passengers.
Sudbury Airport was initially an emergency landing facility in 1952, with a single runway designated 04/22. In 1953, the Sudbury Airport Committee lobbied and arranged for commercial flights to Subdury, hence a new runway designated 12/30 and a terminal building had to be built. The construction was completed in 1955, and regular commercial air service began in 1954.
