Komodo Airport

Komodo Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Komodo) (IATA: LBJ, ICAO: WATO) is an airport near the town of Labuan Bajo on the island of Flores in the East Nusa Tenggara province in Indonesia. The airport's name comes from Labuan Bajo's status as a departure point for tours to the nearby Komodo National Park, home of the Komodo dragon. It was formerly known as Mutiara II Airport, not to be confused with Mutiara Airport located near the city of Palu in Indonesia's Central Sulawesi province. On September 2013 the first Boeing 737-800 landed and took off successfully. On 27 December 2015, President Joko Widodo inaugurated new terminal of Komodo Airport. The new terminal will be able to improve passenger services from the previous 150 thousand passengers per year to 1.5 million passengers per year are expected to increase the number of tourists coming to the island of Flores and its surroundings.
