Lombok International Airport LOP - also referred to as 'Praya Airport' is a new airport, officially opened on October 2011, replacing Selaparang Airport AMA (now closed). It is situated in the central part of the Indonesian island of Lombok, which is part of the island chain of the Lesser Sunda Islands – separated by Lombok Strait from Bali to the west and by Alas Strait from Sumbawa to the East - in Tanak Awu, the regency of Central Lombok.

From the Airport, you can reach within 20 minutes' time the beaches of Kuta Town, south Lombok and other coves, as well as the beautiful countryside.
With one long runway (more to be added in the future) Lombok International Airport can accommodate wide-body aircraft and is currently served by national and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
