Warsaw Municipal Airport (ICAO: KASWFAA LID: ASW) is a public-use airport located two miles (3 km) north of the central business district of Warsaw, a city in Kosciusko County, Indiana, United States. It is owned by the Warsaw Board of Aviation Commissioners.[1]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Warsaw Municipal Airport is assigned ASW by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned ASW to Aswan International Airport in Aswan, Egypt[3]).
