An air flap apparatus for a motor vehicle, encompassing a frame having a flowthrough opening, at least one air flap mounted movably relative to the frame that projects into the flowthrough opening; the at least one air flap being displaceable between closed and open positions in order to modify a gas quantity flowing per unit time, with a predefined flow impingement, through the flowthrough opening; the at least one air flap decreasing a flowthrough-capable cross section of the flowthrough opening greater in the closed position than in the open position; the air flap apparatus further encompassing a motion drive system that is coupled to the at least one air flap to drive the at least one air flap between the closed and open positions, at least one air flap, constituting a light-emitting air flap, having at least one light exit surface to radiate light to an external environment of the light-emitting air flap, the light-emitting air flap having at least one light-guiding light guidance component to guide light from a light entrance portion through to a light exit portion arranged at a distance therefrom, the light guidance component being embodied integrally with a structural component of the light-emitting air flap.
