“Airakoraptor” was a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period. It lived in what is now Mongolia and was first (partially) described by Perle, Norell & Clark, in 1999. It is considered a nomen nudum because it has not been fully described. It may have been a member of Dromaeosauridae, a family of theropods which includes Dromaeosaurus, Velociraptor, Utahraptor and Deinonychus.

This name appears in the bibliography of Perle, A., Norell, M., and Clark, J. (1999). A new maniraptoran Theropod Achillobator giganticus (Dromaeosauridae)  from the Upper Cretaceous of Burkhant, Mongolia. Contribution no. 101 of the Mongolian-American Paleontological Project. pp 1-105 but until now no descripsion is made using this name.
