South Sudan has a large number of airstrips across the country. These airstrips are mostly rudimentary gravel landing strips that are accessible by robust fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. Of these approximately 50 airstrips are regularly serviced by UNHAS and other commercial charters. Apart from JIA only 3 other airstrips, Wau, Paloich and Malakal, have asphalt runways. Current plans are in place to upgrade the runway at Rumbek airport to asphalt and further expand the current airport network.
