Plovdiv Airport ( , Letishte Plovdiv) is the airport of the second largest city in Bulgaria, Plovdiv. Often referred to as Plovdiv Krumovo Airport, a small village located 12 km south-east away from the city on the main highway Plovdiv-Asenovgrad.

Due to its good location, near the famous Bulgarian ski resorts Bansko and Pamporovo, the airport is most active during the winter season. The main traffic is charters to and from the United Kingdom, Ireland and Russia. The airport also plays a vital role in case of emergencies and is sometimes used as an alternate for Sofia Airport, which is almost 150 km away or 1.5 hour drive on the Trakiya motorway.

On 25 December 2009 the first scheduled destination to Moscow started. This is the first scheduled flight since 1981.
