Muara Bungo Airport (IATA: BUU, ICAO: WIJB) is an airport in Muara Bungo, Jambi, Indonesia. The airport started operating on November 25, 2012.[1][2]

Until October 2014 only Aviastar used the airport three times a week due to the runway being only 1,350 meters long. Runway extension is still ongoing; it was predicted to be 1,500 meters at the end of 2014 and was expected to reach its final 2,000 meters at the end of 2015.[3]

Around 2016, runway extension for Muara Bungo Airport was finished. On July 3, 2016, Sriwijaya Air inaugurated a four times weekly flight from Jakarta to Muara Bungo using Boeing 737-500 aircraft. Sriwijaya Air later transferred this route to NAM Air and increased flights from four times weekly to daily flights.
