Cauayan Airport (Filipino: Paliparan ng Cauayan, Ilokano: Pagtayaban ti Cauayan) (IATA: CYZ, ICAO: RPUY) is an airport serving the general area of Cauayan City, located in Isabela province in the Philippines. It is one of two airports in Isabela, the other being Palanan Airport in the town of Palanan. It is classified as a secondary airport, or a minor commercial domestic airport, by the Air Transportation Office, a body of the Department of Transportation and Communications that is responsible for the operations of not only this airport but also of all other airports in the Philippines except the major international airports.
Between 1999 and 2008, the airport hosted no commercial flights. There were proposals to reintroduce commercial service the airport, such as an independent Manila-Cauayan route, as well as a route further on to Tuguegarao Airport in Tuguegarao City. After almost a decade of not hosting commercial service, Cauayan Airport re-opened to commercial traffic on August 15, 2008 using PAL Express aircraft, marking the return of Philippine Airlines to Cauayan, having stopped its services to the city in 1994.
