Batlava-Donja Penduha Airfield or Batlava Airport (ICAO: LYPT) (Albanian: Aeroporti i Batllavës; Serbian: Аеродром Батлава / Aerodrom Batlava) is a former military airport in the village of Dumosh, near Lake Batlava and the towns of Batlava and Podujevo in Kosovo[a].
In 1936, Aeroput used the airport on the Belgrade-Podujevo-Skopje line using the Aeroput MMS-3 plane. The airport was later rebuilt for military use by the Yugoslav army and air force. It was damaged in 1999 during the NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
- Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 113 out of 193 United Nations member states.
- (in English) DONJA PENDUHA AIRFIELD, SERBIA
