In October 2011 the new Lombok International Airport (Bandara International Airport) opened and all incoming and outgoing domestic and international flights were transferred to it. The airport is located in at Tanak Awu in Kabupaten Lombok Tengah (Regency of Central Lombok), south west of Mataram. The airport is approximately 2 hours drive from Senggigi and 2.5 hours from Mangsit the gateway to the Gili Islands are available.
International flights are currently available from Perth (Australia), Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) with more more cities to be added. If existing international routes to Lombok are not suitable travellers might choose to fly into Jakarta or Bali and then purchase a connecting flight, or fast boat if departing from Bali. We recommend that tourists seeking to travel to Lombok from Bali consider the use of a Fast Boat service as this will typically get you to your destination much more quickly than by air after consideration of airport check in times and transfer services from Lombok International Airport to your final destination. For your reference the flight time from Denpasar to Mataram is about 35 minutes.
