Malone-Dufort Airport (ICAO: KMALFAA LID: MAL) is a public use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) west of the central business district of Malone, a village in the Town of Malone, Franklin County, New York, United States.[1] The airport is owned by the Town of Malone.[1] It is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned MAL by the FAA[1] but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned MAL to Mangole, Indonesia).[4]
