Hang Nadim International
Airport (IATA: BTH, ICAO: WIDD), also known as Bandar Udara
Internasional Hang Nadim, is located in Batam, Riau Islands, Indonesia.
The Airport located 22 km North East from the city.
It has been the primary method of transport to and from Batam, alongside
ferries to neighboring islands (including Singapore). As Batam continues
to develop its tourism sectors, the Hang Nadim has proved a sufficiently
effective airport. Originally developed as an alternative airport for
Singapore Changi Airport in mind should in case an emergency for
aircraft force a redirect.
However Changi was developed to grow, and
the Sijori Growth Triangle region has 4 airports, including Sultan
Ismail International Airport (SENAI Airport) in Johor Bahru and the
Seletar Airport. Hang Nadim has facilities and the longest
runway (4,000 m) in Indonesia, sufficient for wide body aircraft Boeing
Hang Nadim International Airport became the eighth airport in Indonesia
to operate 24 hours a day. The move was the result of many airlines
making the airport a hub for their operations.
