Turin-Aeritalia Airport (Italian: Aeroporto di Torino-Aeritalia, ICAO: LIMA) also known as Edoardo Agnelli Airport, built in 1916, is the historical airport of Turin in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. It is located off Corso Marche, some 5 km (3 mi) to the west of the city centre.

Commercial flights moved to Turin Caselle Airport in 1953 and today Torino-Aeritalia is used for tourist flights and as a flying school, both for gliding and powered flight. There is also a helipad for the use of air ambulances.

One of the airport’s buildings was redesigned in 1958 by the Torinese architect Carlo Mollino.
