Liepāja International Airport (IATA: LPX, ICAO: EVLA) is a regional airport in western Latvia which is certified for international air traffic. Together with Riga International Airport and Ventspils Airport this airport is one of the three notable airports in Latvia.
Liepāja International Airport is situated 2.7 NM (5.0 km; 3.1 mi) east of Liepāja, 210 km (130 mi) from the capital of Latvia, Riga, and 60 km (37 mi) from the Lithuanian border. The territory of the airport covers 2.2 km2 (0.85 sq mi) and is integrated within the Liepāja Special Economic Zone. In September 2005, flights from Liepaja to Riga were resumed (as seasonal) after 14 years. From 2007 flights to Riga became regular, and opened new routes to Copenhagen and Hamburg.
Early during the Cold War, the airfield was a Soviet Anti-Air Defense (PVO) base. Its aircraft shot down a U.S. Air Force PB4Y-2 Privateer BuNo 59645 on April 8, 1950.
