Deltuva airfield was an airfield 73 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. It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot.
It consisted of a small runway, a taxiway and a medium sized parking area to the southwest of the runway.
After Lithuanian independence in 1990 the airfield was abandoned.

No photos of the airfield while in use have been located
 
From what can be seen in Google Earth the runway is in a reasonable state. Aerial photography showed some sheds near the platform in 2002 and 2004, but these were taken down by 2011.
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.

Only the foundations of the sheds still existed when this black and white photo was shot in 2011 (Google Earth).
