Labuan Airport (IATA: LBUICAO: WBKL) is an airport that serves the federal territory of Labuan in Malaysia. The airport is 2.5 km (1.6 mi) or 5 km (3.1 mi) by road from Victoria (Labuan Town). It was planned for Labuan Airport to be a regional hub for connecting flights within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) but this plan was postponed due to logistics and unsuitability.

At present, this airport is being expanded to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A330, with 4 aerobridges. In 2008, the airport handled 550,859 passengers, 11,328 aircraft movements and over 4,500 metric tonnes of cargo. The airport is able to handle over 1.2 million passengers per year.[1]
