Blimbingsari Airport Facts

Blimbingsari Airport is a small airport near Banyuwangi, a city in the East Java province of Indonesia. The airport was opened for operations in December 2010. Originally the runway was only 1,400 metres in length and could only accommodate small propeller-driven aircraft such as the Cessna 208, but in 2012 it was extended to 1,800 metres to allow large turboprop airliners such as the Fokker 50 and ATR 72 to operate from the airport. In 2012 it served approximately 25,000 passengers, and in 2014 served almost 88,000 passengers.

It is planned to extend the runway to 2,200 metresto allow jetliners such as the Airbus A320 and Bombardier CRJ to operate flights directly from the capital Jakarta. The expansion plan also calls for a new 3,500 square metres  passenger terminal building and a larger apron. In 2015, the runway extension is began and the pavement will be enhanced to Pavement Classification Number 21 from previously PCN 16.
