Mamasa Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Mamasa) is one of the five regencies that make up the West Sulawesi Province, Indonesia, on the island of Sulawesi. The population was 139,962 in the 2010 Census. Its capital is the Mamasa district, and the Toraja are the most common ethnic group.

Sumarorong Airport[edit]

The airport developed from an airstrip to a 700-meter runway in 2012 and a predicted finish in 2013 with a 1,500-meter runway to facilitate wide-body aircraft. However, the airport ceased operations in 2016 due to a lack of passengers.[1]
