Syamsudin Noor Airport (IATA: BDJICAO: WAOO) is an airport serving Banjarmasin in South Kalimantan, Indonesia. It is 10 kilometres south-west of Banjarbaru and 25 kilometres south-east of Banjarmasin, the largest city in Kalimantan. The airport has two distinctive aprons: One in front of the terminal capable of handling four medium-size planes and one on the terminal's left capable of serving four Boeing 767s. Historically, the Boeing 767 was the first wide-body aircraft to land at this airport in 2004.

In early 2013, the airport served 5.5 million passengers, while the capacity is only for 4 million. The authority has allocated Rp.2.1 trillion ($2.2 billion) to develop the airport and predicted it would be finished by the end of 2014.[5]
