Bellefontaine Regional Airport (ICAO: KEDJ, FAA LID: EDJ) is three miles west of Bellefontaine, in Logan County, Ohio. It is owned by the City of Bellefontaine and operated by Midwest Corporate Air under the auspices of the City.
The airport replaced an earlier airport, Bellefontaine Municipal Airport, which was four miles (6 km) northeast of the current airport (north of the city, near U.S. Route 68). The AOPA said Bellefontaine Regional was, at its opening in 2002, the second new airport to open in Ohio in the last 30 years.
For the last several years Bellefontaine has hosted an annual "Airfest" in late summer. The most recent airshow took place on July 3rd, 2010.
