León Airport, Spanish: Aeropuerto de León or Aeropuertu de Llión in Leonese language , is a minor domestic airport located 6 kilometres from León, Spain.
In March 1920, a ministerial provision on territorial distribution and organisation of military forces and services designated Leon as a location for one of the air stations established under the provision. In 1924, works were authorised to adapt the air station so that Leon airport could be used for stopovers by aircraft on the routes that linked Madrid and Asturias. In 1929 the military aerodrome was provisionally authorised to provide commercial air navigation services.
