To and From the Airport

Baucau (BCH):

Location: Near Baucau, 2-3 hours drive from Dili.
Notes: This airport is currently a Military/UN airfield and has no scheduled civilian flights. However, it is rumoured that this airport may once again in the future become the main airport for East Timor, since its runway is larger than Dili's.
Notes From a Traveller September 2011: Baucau Airport is still for official use only and wouldn't be convenient anyway as it's on a plateau several kilometers from Baucau with no local transportation. Public buses between Dili and Baucau (US$4 one way) pass by the entrance to Baucau Airport.
