Matsumoto Airport (松本空港) (IATA: MMJ, ICAO: RJAF), also known as Shinshu-Matsumoto Airport, is an airport located 5 NM (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) southwest[2] of central Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.

The airport was expanded in 1994 to accommodate jet aircraft. In the past, the airport was served by Japan Air System, mostly using MD-87 aircraft before being integrated into JAL. In FY 2013 its load factors passed 70% for the first time since its expansion. The airport and surrounding region cater to mountaineers during summer months and to skiers during winter months. Japan Airlines operated regular service to Osaka until 2010.[3] However, since recovering from bankruptcy, Japan Airlines has resumed seasonal service to Matsumoto Airport from Osaka Itami Airport using the Embraer E170 aircraft. Other airlines from Korea, Russia and China occasionally fly charter flights to Matsumoto.

The 2013 television movie, Big Airport 2013 (大空港2013) was set at the airport. The movie features Teruyuki Kagawa and was directed by Kōki Mitani.
