Mariehamn Airport ( , ) is located in Jomala, Åland, Finland, some 3 km (1.9 mi) north-west of Mariehamn town centre. It served 48,672 passengers in 2010 and is operated by the state owned Finavia.

The airport is the main hub for Air Åland, who provide regional services to Helsinki and Stockholm with Saab 340 A aircraft, with three or four daily departures to Helsinki and two to Stockholm. Turku Air provides flights to Turku, three times daily on weekdays, operating a Piper PA-31 Navajo, though it also operates cargo, taxi and business flights. The departures to Stockholm arrive earlier than they depart from Mariehamn because they go to a different time zone.

The airport has a duty-free shop. Passengers can buy goods, e.g. alcohol without VAT and other taxes. This is allowed both before flying to Finland and to other countries. Normally local taxes must be paid in airport shops before travelling inside the EU, but Åland is outside the EU VAT area, for the very reason to allow taxfree sales onboard ferries and at the airport. Åland is in other respects a part of the EU.
