The Transportation, Communication and Information Office in Mimika regency in Papua said it planned to develop a commercial airport, which will be named Mozes Kilangin Airport, in the regency capital of Timika.
An 800 meters x 300 meters plot of land has been cleared for the construction of an apron and a taxiway next to the existing airport, John Rettob, the head of Mimika’s transportation office, said.
“The land clearing and some of the land-fixing activities have been completed within budget. However, this accounts for very little of the total work that still needs to be done,” Rettob said as quoted by Antara news agency....
