East Kimberley Regional Airport

Officially known and signposted as East Kimberley Regional Airport (IATA: KNX, ICAO: YPKU), it is more commonly referred to locally as Kununurra Airport an airport in Kununurra, Western Australia. The airport is 2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) west of the town. Heavy wet seasons often result in this area being cut off from essential outside services and deliveries. The airport is a crucial piece of infrastructure which enables people and goods to enter or leave from the region and especially supports tourism and economic development. In 2012, a major expansion of the airport was completed and opened to the public. Costing about AUD$8.68 Million, it effectively doubled the size of the facility. This now includes a dedicated arrivals hall with baggage carousel, enlarged check-in area and improved security for the enlarged departure lounge.
