Helsinki-Malmi Airport ( , ) is an airport in the city of Helsinki, Finland, located in the district of Malmi, 5.4 NM north north-east of the city centre. Until the opening of the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in 1952 it was the main airport of Helsinki and all Finland. Today, the airport is still actively used in general aviation and flight training. It still is the second busiest airport in Finland after Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, as measured by the number of landings.

For a long time, the City of Helsinki has had plans to close the airport in order to use the area for construction of new residential zones. However, the closure of the airport has been a very controversial issue and its future remains unclear.
