ACI Small and Emerging Airports Seminar is a golden opportunity for Indonesia in preparation to entering the ASEAN AVIATION Market 2015. Considering that not all airports in prime tourist destinations are large or major airports, the development of small and secondary airports is considered vital. Small airports are identified by the total number of passenger traffic, being less than 5 million per year.

In Indonesia, some of the busiest small airports include the Komodo Airport at Labuan Bajo, on the island of Flores (189 thousand passen gers per year); Cut Nyak Dhien Airport in Aceh (27 thousands per year), and the Minangkabau Airport in West Sumatra (1.4 million per year).
