Taiping Airport (IATA: TPG, ICAO: WMBI) is an airport in Taiping, Malaysia. It is located at Jalan Muzaffar Shah formerly Creagh Road, Assam Kumbang and also called as Tekah Airport. The airport was built in early 1929, this wooden structure aerodrome was the first airfield in the state of Perak and also in Peninsular Malaysia. The airstrip can accommodate the Fokker planes only, because the landing strip is too short for modern aircraft to land and take off.
Taiping Airport is the oldest airport built in Malaysia. It was built by the British in 1929 for non-military purpose. Along with Alor Star Airport, both were the earliest airports in Malaya that built in the same year. However, in 1933 more airports were built and mushrooming in Singapore, Selangor and Penang, and the Taiping Airport no longer hold the importance.
In February 2007, the airport was chosen to be the centre hub for the Global Flying Hospitals, GFH. However, in July 2007, the decision of choosing Taiping Airport as the flying hub was not suitable, and the Chairman of GFH, Neill Newton, announced a new location will be selected, but not in Malaysia.
