The Canberra International Airport (IATA: CBR, ICAO: YSCB) is the airport serving Australia's national capital, Canberra. It is divided into two sections: the passenger terminal and general aviation facility on one side of the main runway and the ex-air force base on the other, which houses the government's VIP transport squadron and is used by visiting heads of state and military aircraft in transit. Although there are no current international flight services, a service to Fiji operated briefly in 2004.

Today, the airport is a hub for flights to south eastern Australia. The airport today can handle traffic from Melbourne Airport or Sydney International (Kingsford Smith International), where weather conditions restrict landings.

5 airlines fly scheduled services to and from Canberra:
