Timika is a chartered city (kota), and the capital of Mimika Regency of Papua, Indonesia. Though very remote it is a larger city of more than 50,000 people.

In August 2012, the Indonesian government announced plans to develop a new commercial airport in Timika. The Mozes Kilangin Airport will feature a new apron and taxiway created on an 800x300m plot of land adjacent to the existing airport.[1]
