Long Banga Airport (IATA: LBP[2]) is an airport serving Long Banga, a village in the state of Sarawak in Malaysia.

History[edit]

The airport was a small grass airstrip until 1965. During the Indonesia–Malaysia confrontation, the British Army established a forward base here and improved the airstrip with the aid of a small bulldozer parachuted in by the RAF. The land where the airport is located was donated by local villager Mr. Lale Wa.[citation needed]
