Lombok International Airport (IATA: LOP, ICAO: WADL)[1] also known as Zainuddin Abdul Madjid International Airport,[2] is an international airport on the island of Lombok, a part of West Nusa Tenggara province in Indonesia. It is the island's only fully operational airport.[3][2]

It replaced Selaparang Airport,[4] the island's previous sole operational airport, in Ampenan on the west coast of Lombok near the capital of Mataram.

The new facility was officially inaugurated by the president of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on 20 October 2011. The airport can accommodate widebody high capacity Airbus A330 and Boeing 777 airliners, as well as smaller aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 family which were already serving Lombok.[5] The first arriving aircraft was a Garuda Indonesia Boeing 737-800NG marking the commencement of operations on 1 October 2011.[6]


Bandara Internasional Lombok (BIL) had several operational names proposed. In January 2009 results of a public opinion poll conducted in Lombok indicated that Lombok International Airport (LIA) was chosen by 40.4% of respondents, Sasak International Airport (SIA) 20%, Rinjani International Airport (RIA) 46 16.7%, Mandalika the International Airport (MIA) 10.9%, Selaparang International Airport ( SIA) 8%, Pejanggik International Airport (PIA) 2.9%, and Arya Banjar Brittle International Airport (ABGIA) 1.1%.[7][better source needed]

According to the airport's official website, the name is Lombok International Airport in English, and Bandar Udara Internasional Lombok in Indonesian.[1] It is referred to as Zainuddin Abdul Madjid International Airport in some sources.[2][8] Muhammad Zainuddin Abdul Madjid was an ulema from Lombok which founded Nahdlatul Wathan, a prominent Islamic organization in the province.

The IATA code "LOP" only came into formal use in late November 2011. Before that the IATA code AMI, from Selaparang, was used by the airlines servicing the airport. Garuda and Batavia began to partially adopt the LOP code in their booking and ticketing systems at that time. Lion Air was using AMI at the end of November 2011; however, all flights were operating solely to and from Lombok International Airport.[citation needed]


The airport site is at Tanak Awu, in Kabupaten Lombok Tengah (Regency of Central Lombok), Lombok, Indonesia, southwest of Mataram the provincial capital of Nusa Tenggara Barat and a few kilometers southwest of the small regional city of Praya.

The airport has a land area of about 551.8 hectares.[9][10] Lombok International Airport has the second largest area after Soekarno–Hatta International Airport at the time of the opening of the airport.[11]

Airlines and destinations[edit]

When the Lombok International Airport became operational, all the flight schedules at Lombok's Selaparang Airport were moved to the new facility.

As Selaparang Airport never accommodated widebody aircraft, it is expected that further international and domestic services will soon supplement the existing routes providing higher passenger loads and freight volumes to those of the airport at Ampenan.

Public facilities and access[edit]

The airport is served by road links to the city of Mataram which is approximately 40 km to the northwest of the airport. It is approximately 55 km southeast of the established Senggigi tourism precinct of West Lombok. An integral component of the airport project was the building of a new link road to the city of Mataram to provide ready access to the city and tourism facilities on the west coast of the island. At the time of opening in late 2011 some sections of the new road remained incomplete. The developing area of Kuta and Selong Blanak lie 30 minutes to the south and provide some reasonably developed tourist facilities including hotels and restaurants.

The airport is not served by rail connections, and there are none available on the island.

The site is some distance from existing townships and external services; the nearest regional city is Praya, to the immediate north of the airport.

A tour desk, booking kiosks, and other facilities are available at the main terminal.

Car and bus parking[edit]

The airport has extensive paved parking areas at the main terminal and smaller facilities for the cargo terminal and administrative areas. Entrance is by a single controlled access point to the nearby highway.

Public bus services[edit]

Perum DAMRI provide a public airport shuttle service to Terminal Mandalika ('city bus terminal') on the eastern outskirts of Mataram and on to the west coast at Senggigi. The public bus service uses a dedicated fleet of modern air-conditioned buses and provides a scheduled service for set fees.

Taxi services[edit]

When the airport services were moved across from the previous facilities at Selaparang the Airport Taksi Koperasi moved operations to BIL. Upon the commencement of services from BIL they ceased to provide a set distance pre-paid docket system and adopted a metered ('argometer') method of charging for distance traveled. The airport taxi service is supplemented by metered taxis provided by the two established operators: Bluebird Taxi and Express Taxi.


Helicopter and fixed wing charter services are available by prior arrangement.


The airport is undergoing a massive development project. After completion, the passenger capacity will be increased to 7.5 million, the runway will be expanded to 3,300 meters to allow wide bodied aircraft.
