About[edit]

The airport is located some way north of Bata and a short way south of Utonde, it has a 2.3 km runway that operates only during the daytime and in good light. The state carrier and four other private companies make up the majority of Bata's industry, transporting passengers from Bioko's international airport or the two 800m strips on Annobón or Mongomo. The airport is large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737. Bata served 15,000 passengers in 2001. In July 2002, all staff at the airport were arrested for allowing the leader of the Popular Union, an opposition party, to board a flight to the Gabon. The tower frequency is 118.800 MHz (VHF).
