Hang Nadim International Airport (IATA: BTH, ICAO: WIDD), is the primary method of transport to and from Batam, alongside ferries to neighboring islands (including Singapore). It is located in Batam, Riau Islands, Indonesia. It is named after Laksamana Hang Nadim, a Malay warrior. Originally developed to handle diversions of aircraft from Singapore Changi Airport at Singapore in case of an emergency, it has sufficient facilities for wide-body aircraft such as Boeing 747s. The airport has the longest runway in Indonesia and the second-longest runway in Southeast Asia, after Kuala Lumpur International Airport, at 4,214 metres (13,825 ft) long. The airport stretches over a land area of about 1,800 hectares of which only 40% is currently used.
By the end of May 2014, it was the sixth airport in Indonesia to operate 24 hours a day. The move was the result of many airlines making the airport a hub for their operations. Lion Air has developed a base at the airport as Soekarno–Hatta International Airport is severely congested. The airport also has an aircraft maintenance facility which is gradually transforming into a hub for aircraft maintenance.
