Flight Information

Information about Balikpapan

Balikpapan is an important seaport city within the Indonesian province of East Kalimantan. Also known as the “Oil City” or “Banua Patra,” the area is known for its abundance of oil reserves. Balikpapan is the main entrance into the East Kalimantan region, even more so than the province’s capital city Samarinda. Balikpapan tends to be more crowded than the capital city because of its Semayang and Kariangau harbors, which also serve as main entrances into the region. Visitors adore Balikpapan for its many beaches and nearby nature tourism destinations, including the Samboja Lestari orangutan conservancy and the Bangkirai rainforest. Formerly known as Sepinggan Airport, Sultan Aji Muhammad Sulaiman International Airport serves as an important entrance into Balikpapan, East Kalimantan and the entire island of Borneo.
