New airport Lombok /​ neuer Flughafen in Lombok

 We would like to inform you that from 1st Octo­ber, 2011 all inco­m­ing and out­go­ing pla­nes are using the new  Inter­na­tio­nal (Band­ara Inter­na­tio­nal Lom­bok).

 The new air­port repla­ces Sel­a­parang Air­port, the islands pre­vious sole ope­ra­tio­nal air­port situa­ted at Ampen­an, on the West coast of Lom­bok near the capi­tal of Mataram. Sel­a­parang Air­port was clo­sed on 30th Sep­tem­ber, 2011.

The new air­port is situa­ted in Tanak Awu, in Kabu­pa­ten Lom­bok Ten­gah (Regen­cy of Cen­tral Lom­bok), around 40 km south of the pre­vious Mataram Sel­a­parang Air­port.

 The new loca­ti­on of the air­port has two impac­ts :

 -        The from Lom­bok to takes more time.

-        The trans­fer from Lom­bok Air­port to the main requested hotels takes around 1h /​ 1,5h.

 The most usu­al way to get from to Lombok/​Gili Trawan­gan is by pla­ne and then a boat if going to Gili Islands. As it will take more time now, we recom­mend to take a fast boat from to Lombok/​Gili Islands. The­re are several com­pa­nies ser­ving -Lom­bok-Gili Trawan­gan or -Gili Trawan­gan.
