Airton (also known as Airton-in-Craven) is a small village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire in the Yorkshire and the Humber region of England, situated 10 miles north-west of Skipton. The local travel links are located 3 miles from the village to Hellifield railway station and 23 miles to Leeds Bradford International Airport. Also, the local roads link the village to the A65. The village has a population of 175 according to the 2001 Census.

It was known as Airtone in the Domesday Book. It is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Originally a Quaker village, there is no pub in the village. There is still a Quaker meeting house, a squatter's cottage on the village green and an old mill on the River Aire from which the village is named. There is no Post Office in the village, however there is a Farm Shop and Tea Room at Town End Farm on the road to Malham.

The village lies on the main road to the tourist village of Malham. There is a bus stop in the village but no regular bus travel goes through Airton apart from the school buses. Gargrave is the nearest railway station to the village.
