Domine Eduard Osok Airport serves as a major gateway to the Raja Ampat Islands, since it is closer to the city of Sorong, compared to the provincial capital of Manokwari. Due to increasing demand, the government has decided to lengthen the runway to 2,500 m from 2,000 m so that the airport can accommodate wide-body aircraft. This was done in mid-2015. A new terminal with 2 jetbridge is under construction. Construction has started in mid-2013. It is predicted to start operating in February 2016. The new terminal could accommodate 2,4 million passenger per year, three times larger than the current terminal, which could only accommodate 700,000 passenger per year. In total, the project cost up to 239 billion rupiah.
