:"MXX" redirects here. It is also the roman numeral for 1020.Mora-Siljan Airport , is located about 7 km or 3.3 NM southwest of Mora, Sweden. Its Fixed Base Operator (FBO), AB Dalaflyget, which also operates the Dala Airport, is constituted of the municipalities of Mora, Falun, Borlänge and the Dalarna County, in Central Sweden. Dalaflyget also provides the air traffic control services. The 45 m wide runway and parking can accommodate Boeing 737-type airliners.

Since January 2006, Nextjet operates two flights to Arlanda (positioning from Sveg) on weekdays (and three on Thursdays), plus one on Sundays in 50 minutes, with a 19-seater Beech 1900D prop aircraft, except on Saturdays. This route, focused on business travellers, is integrated in the Amadeus reservation system, and can be easily linked to the Scandinavian Airlines System and other airlines networks. Nextjet also operates charter flights with a Cessna jet. Besides, the field houses the Ovansiljans Flygklubb.

As the number of passengers dramatically fell from about 50,000 passengers per year in the 1980s to 7,000 at Mora, following a trend experienced during this period by every single Swedish third-level airport, cutthroat competition between two domestic airlines, Skyways Express and the defunct European Executive Express came to an end in 2005, leaving the area without flight to Stockholm and the outside world. Mora municipality cared for the airport before Dalaflyget was set up.
