Abdul Rachman Saleh Airport

Abdul Rachman Saleh Airport (IATA: MLG, ICAO: WARA, formerly WIAS) is an airport serving Malang, the second largest city in East Java province of Indonesia. This airport is named after Abdoel Rachman Saleh, an Indonesian aviator and physiologist whose plane was shot down by the Dutch when landing in Maguwo Airfield (now Adisucipto International Airport), Sleman Regency, Yogyakarta during Indonesian National Revolution. The airport was closed in October 2009 due to numerous damages found in the runway, but has opened again after some repairs were done. The new terminal was opened on 30 December 2011 replacing the old terminal that is used by the Indonesian Air Force. The new terminal is at the south end of the runway.
