Sjenica Airport (Serbian: Аеродром Сјеница / Aerodrom Sjenica) (ICAO: LYSJ), also known as Dubinje Airport (Serbian: Аеродром Дубиње / Aerodrom Dubinje) is a military airport in Serbia, near the town of Sjenica on Pešter plateau. The airport is also near to the mountain resort Zlatar.

History[edit]

The airport was built as a military one, and used by Yugoslav army air force. During the 1999 NATO bombing of FR Yugoslavia, it was damaged.

On 27 September 2006, the Military of Serbia announced that it would sell Sjenica Airport meaning that the airport would become public.[citation needed]

Future reconstruction[edit]

The management of Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport have visited Sjenica Airport on 18 May 2006, and announced plans of making a project aimed at turning this airport into a public one. The airport will mostly be used for cargo and possible tourist transport. Local companies confirmed their interest for this project.
