Gothenburg City Airport or Göteborg City Airport , formerly (and still informally) known as Säve Flygplats, is Gothenburg's second international airport, located 5 NM north-west from the centre of Gothenburg on the island of Hisingen, Bohuslän, Sweden. It is located within the borders of Gothenburg Municipality, hence its name. Prior to the arrival of Ryanair in 2001, the airport had 9,000 passengers per year. 844,000 passengers flew from City Airport in 2008. In addition to commercial airlines, the airport is also operated by a number of rescue services, including the Swedish Coast Guard.

Although it's primarily a low-cost airline airport, it is actually located closer to Gothenburg city centre than the main (Gothenburg-Landvetter Airport with 4.36 million passengers in 2007), even if the driving time is around the same. It is one of the few city airports Ryanair operates to. Due to its location many business jets prefer flying to City Airport rather than Landvetter. Gothenburg City Airport can handle planes up to the size of a Boeing 767, an Airbus A320 or similar jets. The airport also accommodates General Aviation activities, including 2 flying clubs, Aeroklubben i Göteborg, one of Europe's oldest flying clubs, and Chalmers flygklubb.
