The aer (literally the "air"; modern Greek: Αέρας; Slavonic: Воздухъ, Vózdukh) is a veil used for covering the paten and chalice during and after the Eucharist. The priest shakes the aer over the chalice when the creed is read; this symbolizes the descent of the Holy Spirit. The aer also represents the shroud of Christ.

In the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, the aer covers the head of the priest during the Great Entrance.
