Sármellék International Airport (Hungarian: Sármellék Nemzetközi Repülőtér) (IATA: SOB, ICAO: LHSM), also known as FlyBalaton Airport, was an international airport in Hungary located west of Lake Balaton 1 km (0.62 mi) south southwest of the village of Sármellék, Zala County and Keszthely. Its importance was due to the proximity of Lake Balaton, Hungary's most important holiday resort and the thermal spas of Hévíz and Zalakaros.

A military airport was already located here in the 1940s. It was paved in the 1950s and functioned as a Hungarian military airport until 1960, and as a Soviet military airport between 1960 and the Autumn of 1990. The current runways were constructed in 1982.

The airport is owned by the local governments of Sármellék and Zalavár since August 2002, operated by an Irish-Hungarian investment group, Cape Clear Aviation Ltd., since 2004.

Due to financial problems, the airport closed over the winter period 2008–09, but closed indefinitely on October 10, 2009. A new buyer is being sought for the facility.

According to the airport's website, Lufthansa flights from Germany will resume on April 10, 2010.
