The current terminal has an area measuring 1,440 m2. In the master plan, the airport terminal would be expanded to 4,000 m2 and on the next phase it would be expanded further to 7,000 m2. The airport's apron and taxiway would also be widened to accommodate larger aircraft.

The airport currently can only accommodate airplanes up to the ATR-72, since the runway currently only has a length of 1,641 m. However, the government is planning to extend the runway to 2,000 m in 2016, and in the next phase would be extended further to 2,500 m. The runway would also be widened to 45 m from the current 30 m. This would allow the airport to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 737, Fokker 100 and the Airbus A320.
