Lombok Airport, otherwise known as Bandara International Lombok Airport, is your main gateway to Lombok. Opening in October 2011, Lomboks first international airport has opened doors for travelers.
The new Lombok International Airport is located in central Lombok, at Tanak Awu, not far from Praya.
Facilities at the Airport although small and basic, are at international standard. The airport is capable of holding a significant number of passengers each year, and the runway is compatible with a number of different aircrafts.
There is essentially one terminal, divided into two sections to cater for international and domestic flights.
There is a passenger lounge, visa on arrival facilities, and a large car parking area. They also provide an airport shuttle bus for a fee. Airport taxi’s are also available.

Airport Taxis and Transfers
Once you land in Lombok you will need to get to your specific destination. If you are going to Mataram or Senggigi, DAMRI offers an airport shuttle bus to these locations for a set fee.
If you are going to other locations, or do not want to use the bus service, airport taxi’s are available (metered).
Depending on where you are staying, you may be able to organise airport transfers with your hotel. Contact your hotel for more information.
