Sandane Airport, Anda (IATA: SDN, ICAO: ENSD) (Norwegian: Sandane lufthavn, Anda) is an airport in the Gloppen municipality in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway, opened in 1975. The airport is located north of the municipality centre, at the base of a peninsula between the fjords Nordfjord and Gloppefjord. The airport is operated by Avinor.
The only airline at the airport is Widerøe who operates regional Dash 8 aircraft on public service obligation contract with the Norwegian Government.
The airport has a single 800 m runway running roughly east-west, hence numbered 09/27, which straddles the peninsula. The airport is in fairly rugged terrain with mountains and water, and landing an aircraft at Anda is fairly demanding. Safety regulations regarding the runway length have put the airports future in doubt because the location of the airport makes extending the runway difficult. A study did show that it would be possible to bury the E39 road, which now runs west of the airport into a tunnel and expand the runway to 1000 m at a price of around 110 million NOK.
