Flights and Airports in Flores

airport labuan bajoFlores can be reached either from Jakarta (CGK), Bali (DPS), Makassar (UJP), Surabaya (SUB), Lombok (LOB) or from Kupang (KOE) in West-Timur by plane. There are daily direct flight

There are not yet international airports on Flores. At the moment only small airplanes, about 50 to 80 seaters can land on the airports in Flores. The landing strips are still too short for bigger aircrafts. Maumere and Labuan Bajo got new modern airports in 2015. In the near future bigger jets with more passenger capacities will be able to land on these two airports as well.
