Bergen Airport, Flesland (Norwegian: Bergen lufthavn, Flesland) (IATA: BGO, ICAO: ENBR) is the airport in Bergen, Norway, located 19 km south of the city center. It was opened in 1955, and built with funds from NATO. It has functioned as a combined civil and military airport since its opening. Flesland is owned and operated by Avinor.

Flesland is Norway's second largest airport, having 95,484 aircraft movements and 4,580,474 passengers in 2006. Seven airlines offer domestic flights to 16 destinations while eight airlines offer flights to 19 international destinations, including daily flights to Aberdeen, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London and Riga. Some of the traffic comes from Flesland's role as a hub for regional traffic from Sogn og Fjordane, with many flights with 37 seat Dash 8 airplanes operated by Widerøe and ATR 42 planes by Danish Air Transport. The old terminal is converted to a heliport, which primarily serves oil platforms in the North Sea. Still, the most important route is the one to Oslo, with about 35 daily flights with Boeing 737 aircraft operated by Norwegian and Scandinavian Airlines. This route is the seventh busiest in Europe

Its current terminal was designed by the local architect Halfdan Grieg and was opened in 1988. The same architect also designed the old terminal. The terminal has 11 gates with jetbridges, numbered 21-32 (gate 30 is for airplanes on the apron). In general, gates on the south side of the terminal are used for international flights while gates on the north side are for domestic flights. Gates in the middle, i.e. the west side, have various assignments.
