Bern-Belp Airport is an airport serving Bern in Switzerland. The airport is within the town limits of Belp, and it is often known simply as Belp Airport.

The airport has multiple touchdown areas, a paved runway (14/32 of 1,730 metres (5,676 ft)), a grass runway (32L/12R of 650 metres (2,133 ft)), a heli-square, and a glider area. Runway 14 has an ILS approach and an NDB approach.

Two bus lines serve the airport: the Bern (line 334) connects the terminal with Bern Rail Station, and the Tangento bus (line 160) connects the airport with Belp, Konolfingen and Münsingen .

The Biderhangar, one of the airport's hangars built by Swiss aviation pioneer Oskar Bider, is listed as a heritage site of national significance in the November 2008 review draft of the Swiss Inventory of Cultural Property of National and Regional Significance.

The North Terminal of the airport houses the head offices of Heliswiss and Sky Work Airlines.

The future development includes a new terminal building next to the existing one for Schengen-flights (operational in December 2011), new taxiways, but also a new parking area. According to the "Masterplan 2009-2020", a brand new area should be built for private aviation on the southern side of the airfield.
