Along Airport (ICAO: VEAN) also known as Aalo Airport is located at Along in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, India.

The Government of Arunachal Pradesh handed over the airstrip to the Ministry of Defence in June 2009.[1] The government has proposed to operationalise a civil enclave at the airport.[2]

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) had sent a report to the state government and the Indian Air Force in July 2011 for the removal of obstacles around the aerodrome for safe flight operations and cited a requirement of seven acres of land for the development of the civil enclave.[3]
