TrafficPort Venlo is an industrial complex and small airport between Maasbree and Sevenum, in the south east of the Netherlands. It is located along the A67 motorway near the city of Venlo.

The airport was opened in October 2009. It has an asphalt runway of 700 meters (2,297 feet) long, suitable for smaller general aviation aircraft only. Currently however, the airfield is closed to all air traffic except helicopters.

TrafficPort Venlo also has a traffic training centre for motorists.[citation needed]

As of December 2015, its imminent closure was announced. Local government bodies were not interested in investing in the airfield to help develop it further to allow business aviation, and income from recreational aviation alone proved to be insufficient.[1] Following this decision, air traffic was restricted to helicopters only.
