Kovin Airport (Serbian Latin: Aerodrom Kovin, Cyrillic: Аеродром Кoвин) (ICAO: LY87) is an airport in the Kovin Municipality, Vojvodina, Serbia. The airport is also near the town of Smederevo and some 45 km (28 mi) east of central Belgrade.

In April 2006 the airport asked for it to be used for public use as well. The government will most likely accept the move.
