Alykel Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Алыкель) (IATA: NSK, ICAO: UOOO) is a large airport in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia located 35 km west of Norilsk. Alykel is the only functional airfield around Norilsk. It handles medium-sized airliners and is serviced by 24-hour operations. Since it is capable of handling widebody jets it is designated as one of several emergency airfields for cross-polar airline routes.

It was originally constructed in the late 1950s as a staging base for Soviet bombers to reach the United States. This role continues to this day with caretaker status provided by the Russian Air Force's OGA (Arctic Control Group). Norilsk also is served by interceptor aircraft under the 57 IAP (57th Interceptor Aircraft Regiment), which as of 1991 had 24 Sukhoi Su-15TM aircraft .
