Acokavai air field was an airfield 170 kilometers northwest of Vilnius, Lithuania.
The airfield was built by order of the Lithuanian SSR (a state within the Soviet Union) Council of Ministers in the 1975-1985 timeframe and used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway and a fairly large platform to the north of the runway.
After Lithuanian independence the airfield was abandoned.


No photos of the airfield while in use have been located

From aerial photography on Google Earth it is currently not possible to use the airfield. Although still relatively complete, trees and bushes are growing immediately next to the runway and platforms
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
