Iskandar Airport (IATA: PKNICAO: WAGI (Previous : WAOI)) is a military type-C airport in Pangkalan Bun, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia and is the only airport in Central Kalimantan which has an Avtur fuel station. It is the largest military airport in Indonesia with around 3,570 hectares area, however only 200 hectares is currently used for runway and buildings. Due to the still vast area unused, it is also functioned as a forest in the city.[4]


The airport resides at an elevation of 75 feet (23 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 13/31 with an asphalt surface measuring 1,650 by 30 metres (5,413 ft × 98 ft).[2]

The runway was extended to 2,120 metres (6,955 ft) in 2014 to accommodate Boeing 737.[1]
