Selaparang Airport (IATA: AMIICAO: WADA), was the sole airport serving the island of Lombok and the city of Mataram, the capital of the province of West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia up until its closure on 30 September 2011. The IATA code AMI came from the nearby port of Ampenan, now a part of Mataram. The airport was operated by PT. Angkasa Pura 1 (PERSERO). The new Bandara Internasional Lombok operated under the AMI IATA code until late November 2011, toward the end of the month the IATA code LOP was formally listed for the new airport and was slowly being transitioned by the airlines operating to Lombok.

Selaparang Airport was closed on 30 September 2011 [1] to facilitate transfer of resources and operations across to the new Lombok International Airport (Bandara Internasional Lombok - BIL) (IATA: LOPICAO: WADL) in Central Lombok Regency.[2][3]

On 28 July 2011 the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (Indonesia), published an announcement stating that from 1 October 2011 at 02:00 hrs all incoming and outgoing aircraft were to use the new Lombok International Airport (Bandara Internasional Lombok - BIL) (IATA: LOPICAO: WADL) in Central Lombok Regency.[4] The effective date for the announcement was 22 September 2011 with all aircraft operations being expected to cease at Selaparang Airport on 30 September 2011 at 10:00 hrs.[5] Operations did subsequently cease at Selaparang on the prescribed date at 18:00 hrs. The last person to legally depart by aircraft from Selaparang Airport was Jack Forrest, an Australian Pilot currently studying in Lombok.

Future uses of the Selaparang airport[edit]

Reactivation[edit]

In February 2012, PT Angkasa Pura I (PT AP I) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Merukh Enterprise for utilizing the airport as aircraft maintenance area. PT AP I has also agreed some area of the airport is used as Lombok Institute Flying Technology (LIFT) which 51 percent stake is kept by domestic investor and the rest is kept by Castel Mark Limited, Hongkong. The airport definitely closed for regular flights, but opens for charter flights.[10]

Proposed development as a Regional Aviation Hub[edit]

The future use of Selaparang Airport to develop a General Aviation Hub for Indonesia may offer considerable opportunities for Indonesia's tourism triangle of Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa. Currently national law restricts the development of General Aviation in Indonesia due to national laws preventing other than Indonesian registered pilots to operate inside Indonesian airspace without a suitably qualified Indonesian pilot present in the cockpit.
