Bellefontaine Regional Airport (ICAO: KEDJFAA LID: EDJ) is a public airport located three miles (5 km) west of the central business district of Bellefontaine, a city in Logan County, Ohio, United States. It is owned by the City of Bellefontaine.[1] It is a corporate and general aviation airport operated by Midwest Corporate Air under the auspices of the City of Bellefontaine. The airport is accessible by road from State Route 47.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Bellefontaine Regional Airport is assigned EDJ by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[2]

The airport replaced an earlier airport, Bellefontaine Municipal Airport, which was located four miles (6 km) northeast of the current airport (to the north of the city, near U.S. Route 68). According to the AOPA, Bellefontaine Regional was, at its opening in 2002, only the second new airport to open in Ohio in the last 30 years.[3]

For the last several years, Bellefontaine Regional has hosted an annual "Airfest" in late summer. The most recent of these airshows took place on July 3rd, 2010.
