Haluoleo Airport (formerly Wolter Monginsidi Airport) is an airport in Kendari, South East Sulawesi, Indonesia (IATA: KDIICAO: WAWW). The previous name of the airport was named for Robert Wolter Monginsidi, an Indonesian national hero who was executed by the Dutch during the Indonesian National Revolution. Since February 13, 2010, the airport is renamed to honor Buton Sultanate's sixth sultan, Halu Oleo. The new terminal was opened on 6 April 2012.

Haluoleo service has experienced some service improvement, especially in the presence of 3 aerobridge facilities that facilitate passengers entering the terminal region of departure and arrival airports and heading to and from the aircraft. The airport's apron is now also undergoing expansion and can accommodate eight wide-body aircraft in its class such as the Boeing 737-900ER and Airbus A320.

Currently, Haluoleo service is being pursued as a transit airport for flights in eastern Indonesia, in addition to Hasanuddin Airport Makassar which is currently already has a congested capacity. It is hoped that in the future, with transit in the airport, aircraft operating costs can be reduced because it can save fuel.[2]

Expansions[edit]

In 2011, the apron has been expanded from 195x91 square meter to 234x113 square meter. The runway is still being expanded from 2,250 meters to 2,500 meters and predicted will be finished at end of 2012.[3]
