Cambridge Bay Airport (IATA: YCB, ICAO: CYCB) is located 1.6 nautical miles (3.0 km; 1.8 mi) southwest of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Canada, and is operated by the government of Nunavut.

In December 2005 the Government of Nunavut announced that they would spend $18 million to pave the runway.[5]

On 14 May 2008 a press release from the then Premier of Nunavut, Paul Okalik, and Member of the Legislative Assembly, Keith Peterson, indicated that over the next three years the runway would be widened and lengthened.[6]
