Bintan to get second airport

THE INDONESIAN government has given the green light for a second airport to be built on Bintan island, to be located within the Lagoi Bay site that has been earmarked for a massive integrated resort development.

The new airport, which will cater to chartered, domestic and private flights, will offer quicker access to Bintan’s existing as well as future tourism facilities, said Asad Shiraz, director of marketing with Bintan Resorts International, whose parent company, Gallant Venture, is leading the resort development.

Lagoi Bay is situated near Bintan’s tourism centre, close to properties such as Ria Bintan Golf Club, Club Med Bintan and Nirwana Resort Hotel.

Bintan is currently served by Kijang Airport on its southern end.
