Rundāle airfield was an airfield close to the town of Rundāle, 60 kilometers south of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe and was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway, taxiways and two platforms to the south of the runway.

No photos of the airfield while in use have been located.

In 2011, Latvian Aviation listed the airfields condition as 'fairly good'. Successor site MyAirfields ranks it as 'average', noting that the "runway itself is in a fairly good condition. Not recommended for low power-to-weight aircraft since a good climb performance is needed to safely overfly (...) obstacles."
The airfield is uncertified, meaning it is officially closed to all traffic.
