Baucau Airport is an unattended airport located 6.5 km west of Baucau, a city in East Timor (Timor-Leste). Baucau Airport has a much longer runway than Dili's Presidente Nicolau Lobato International Airport. Prior to 1975 this airport had been used for international flights, including those of Trans Australia Airlines from Australia. During the Indonesian occupation of East Timor, the airport served as a base for aircraft of the Indonesian Air Force, who were stationed for counter-insurgency effort toward the pro-independence guerilla.
