Pskov Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Псков) (IATA: PKVICAO: ULOO) is an airfield in Pskov Oblast, Russia located 6 km southeast of Pskov. It is a medium air base with 27 large revetments in a complex, sprawling taxiway layout. The civilian terminal area services 13 medium/large planes and 20 small planes. There is no instrument landing capability.

The primary military user is the 334 VTAP (334th Military Transport Aviation Regiment), operating Ilyushin Il-76 aircraft.[2] Scheduled passenger flights are operated by Embraer 120 and Fokker 50.

In 1990s regular flights were interrupted due to a significant reduction of the demand for passenger and cargo air service. After a short-lived air connection to Moscow operated by Eurasia Airlines in 2003, scheduled airline services were not resumed before May 2007.[3] In the beginning these services were operated by St. Petersburg based carrier Vyborg Airlines but has since then been taken over by UTair Aviation and Atlant-Soyuz and later discontinued. In 2009 two airlines announced to serve the airport. Region-Avia started flights to Moscow-Vnukovo and airBaltic announced international services to its Riga hub. The latter services were cancelled in December 2009 due to the state of the runway during winter.
