near the shoreline, a mere 25 meters away, means that only 800 meters of
runway are still usable.
addition to this, stone from the eroded runway is being carried away by
surrounding communities for the construction of houses.
The operation of the Airport
is managed by UPT Ditjen Hubud, an agency under Ministry of Transportation,
