Maribor Edvard Rusjan Airport ( ) is the second biggest airport in Slovenia, serving the city of Maribor. It is located 9 km (5.6 mi) south of the Maribor railway station, near Slivnica. The airport currently has one scheduled flight and there are also seasonal charter flights to coastal destinations.

It is named after the Slovene pioneer aviator Edvard Rusjan.

When Slovenia was a part of Yugoslavia, the airport was regularly served by state airline JAT, connecting mainly Belgrade and the Croatian Adriatic coast. Later, the airport was served with scheduled flights by Slovenian Spirit, an arm of Styrian Spirit, which offered scheduled flights to Paris and Salzburg until March 2006, when Styrian Spirit ended operations due to insolvency.

On 8 March 2007 Ryanair announced that it would commence service between London-Stansted and Maribor in June 2007 three times weekly. The expectations from this service included an increase in tourist exploration of the region that has an excessive potential in all-year round offerings.

The service started on June 7 and ended 27 March 2008. The new Terminal is under construction and will be finished till March 2011. The capacity will be at least 600.000 pax/year.
