Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport is an international airport located in southeastern Poland, in Jasionka, a village 10 km (6.2 mi) from the center of the city of Rzeszów. It is the seventh-busiest airport in Poland, and has seasonal transatlantic connections.

Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport, situated 7.8 km (4.8 mi) north of Rzeszów, features the second-longest runway in Poland: 3200 x 45 m (1988.4 x 28 0 ). In years 2009-10 it registered 18.66% increase in passenger traffic serving 451720 passengers in 2010. Coupled with the September 2006 start of the construction on a new passenger terminal, this means that the airport is undergoing a rapid expansion, albeit in fits and starts, owing to delays in setting up the management company and obtaining financing and routes.

As of January 2008, it has scheduled international flights to Dublin and London-Stansted, in addition to its domestic connection with Warsaw. On 2 June 2007 LOT Polish Airlines commenced seasonal Boeing 767 service to New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark's Newark Liberty International Airport. It has also become a preferred arrival point for Jews on pilgrimage to the tomb of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk usually in March.
