Although the airport contains very beautiful scenery surrounded by sea and mountains, H Hasan Aroeboesman Airport probably is one of the most extreme airports in Indonesia. Frankly, to have to turn 90 degrees plane shortly after takeoff or before landing. Not without reason, because there is a mountain a few kilometers from the end of the runway. Therefore, only the most experienced pilots are allowed to pilot aircraft that is going to or from the airport.
The current apron can accommodate three planes. When more than three planes need to use the apron any additional plane(s) must wait. Wait times for the use of the apron by a fourth or fifth plane have been up to 20 minutes. In 2014, the apron will be enlarged to the east to accommodate up to 5 planes.
