Uzhhorod International Airport, (Ukrainian: Міжнародний аеропорт «Ужгород»; Slovak: Medzinárodné letisko "Užhorod") (IATA: UDJ, ICAO: UKLU) is an international airport located in the city of Uzhhorod, in the western Ukrainian province of Zakarpattia. The airport is situated in the westernmost part of the city, in the Chervenytsia district at 145, Sobranetska Street.

It is a small airport, serving Uzhhorod and the whole oblast. The airport is unique in its operation: the runway begins 90 meters from the Ukrainian-Slovak international border, so planes must use Slovak airspace for take-offs and landings under special treaty.[3]

From summer 2016 until March 2019 the airport did not handle regular flights.[4]
