To visit Papua, flights are available from the following locations in Indonesia: Manado, Makassar (Ujung Pandang), Bali or Jakarta.  All of these have international connections.  Flights are scheduled between these locations and the townships of Jayapura, Biak, Manokwari and Sorong in Papua.

Several airlines fly to Papua and some have a daily schedule.  They include Garuda Indonesia Airways, Merpati Airlines, Wings Air (Lion Air), Express Air, and Batavia Air. 

Some of these airlines also schedule domestic flights within Papua.
