Tamga Airport (Kyrgyz: Тамга аэропорту, Russian: Тамгинский аэропорт) (IATA: none (ТМГ), ICAO: UAFA) is a small airport serving Jeti-Ögüz District in Issyk-Kul Region (oblast) of Kyrgyzstan. The Russian IATA code for the airport is ТМГ.[2]

Tamga Airport started its operations in the 1930s as a reserve landing strip on the southern shore of Issyk-Kul Lake. The current runway and terminal were built in the 1960s. The runway can only accept AN-2 and AN-28 planes and their analogues, has no instrument landing facilities, and operates only during daylight hours.[3]

The airport is currently used for agricultural purposes, although there are plans to renovate it as the number of tourists to the southern shore of Issyk-Kul Lake is set to increase. Until 1990, Tamga had regular links with Bishkek, Osh, and Jalal-Abad.
