Mora–Siljan Airport (IATA: MXXICAO: ESKM) is located about 7 km or 3.3 NM southwest of Mora, Sweden. Its fixed-base operator (FBO), AB Dalaflyget, which also operates Dala Airport, consists of the municipalities of Mora, Falun, Borlänge and Dalarna County, in Central Sweden. Dalaflyget also provides air traffic control services. The 45 m wide runway and parking can accommodate Boeing 737-type airliners.

Two flights operate to Arlanda on weekdays (three on Thursdays), and one on Sundays, in approximately 50 minutes. 2011 to 2015, Avies operated the line with a 19-seater Jetstream 32 turboprop aircraft. The airfield is also home to Ovansiljans Flygklubb.

The number of passengers fell dramatically from about 50,000 passengers per year in the 1980s to 7,000 in recent years, following a trend experienced during this period by all Swedish third-level airports. Cutthroat competition between two domestic airlines, Skyways Express and the defunct European Executive Express, came to an end in 2005, leaving the area without flights to Stockholm and the outside world, requiring a 4-hour drive. Mora Municipality managed the airport before Dalaflyget was established. From 2016 AIS Airlines operate the line to Stockholm.
