Air-bridge Charges

An agreement between UNMIT, CAD and Australian armed forces has been made with the government of Timor-Leste to facilitate the evacuation of UN and ISF personnel in the event of civil unrest / conflict. However any special fees levied for such operations have not been formally established, CAD director indicated that usual landing fees would apply.

Security

  Bad

There is a fence surrounding the airport and several security providers maintaining a presence in the airport, this includes: a UNPOL patrol, approximately 20 BPU (Timorese Border Patrol Unit) personnel, and approximately 20 airport security officers.
The access fence at the start of runway 26 (East-Northeast of the airport grounds) is closed with a locked gate, and not guarded. However, during unrest this access point is a good alternative if the public area of the main terminal building is volatile.
The Airport directorate has procured a container x-ray scanner which should be established and operational in early 2010.
