Leipzig/Halle Airport, sometimes called Schkeuditz Airport , is located in Schkeuditz, Saxony and serves both Leipzig, Saxony and Halle, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

It has more than two million passengers per year.

The modern airport terminal structure extends over the adjacent motorway and railway. The terminal access is south of the railway while the runway 08L/26R parallels the driveway north of the railway, requiring aircraft to taxi on a bridge over the tracks and roads. The airport was modernized with the 2012 Olympic Games hosting bid for Leipzig in mind but the city lost out to London. The DHL move in early 2008 from Brussels Airport to Leipzig as its European hub increased cargo traffic. Military installations have also been built at the airport for NATO and EU military aircraft.
