Maleme Airport (Greek: Αεροδρόμιο Μάλεμε) is an airport situated at Maleme, Crete. It has two runways (13/31 and 03/21) with no lights. The airport has closed for commercial aviation, but the Chania Aeroclub continues to use it.

The airport operated until 1959 as the main public airport of Chania. As of 2012 the Hellenic Air Force makes limited use of the facility.

Maleme Airport became a historic World War II site when many German parachutists landed there in May 1941 as part of the Battle of Crete.
