Ranai Airport

The airport is also a Type B airbase of the Indonesian Air Force. Other than that, the airport also serves civilian flights.

Due to the ongoing South China Sea dispute, the Indonesian government has decided to expand the airport to accommodate large military aircraft.


Additional facilities, such as aircraft hangars, ILS, refueling hangar are also currently being added. More military personnel are also stationed.
