Future uses of the Selaparang airport
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.
Proposed development as a Regional Aviation Hub
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.
