General Overview

  • Rokot Airport is an airport in Sipora, West Sumatra.

  • Currently, only small body aircraft can land at the airport.

  • The airport was completed in 1980 with a runway size of 850 x 23 m.

  • However, the airport is now threatened by possible submersion as erosion near the shoreline (a mere 25 meters away) means that only 800 meters of runway are still usable.

  • Plans to extend the runway to 1,600 x 30 meters (still land acquisition process in 2017)
