Siesikai airfield was an airfield 83 kilometers north-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.
Like similar fields, it consisted of a small runway and taxiways but this one has two platforms on opposite sides of the runway. A fairly large aircraft parking area is located to the southeast of the runway, while a significantly smaller one is located to the northwest.
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, although it could use a cleanup. Aerial photography shows no buildings at the airfield. 
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
