Madison Municipal Airport (IATA: XMD, ICAO: KMDS, FAA LID: MDS) is a city-owned public use airport located one nautical mile (1.85 km) northeast of the central business district of Madison, a city in Lake County, South Dakota, United States.[1] This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]
