The Presidente Nicolau Lobato International Airport of Dili (named after a national hero and politician) serves Dili and the country of Timor-Leste. The airport was formerly known as Comoro International airport.
Dili Airport is only served by Sriwijaya Air (Denpasar, Bali), Air Timor (to Singapore now and then) and Airnorth (Darwin, Australia). The lack of competition means flight fares to Dili are expensive. It may be worth to check for flights to Atambua or Kupang on the Indonesian part of the island and go to Dili by bus.
The Presidente Nicolau Lobato International Airport is small with limited facilities and has a single, short runway.
The Dili Airport is located just 6 km west of Dili.
Downtown Dili is close to the airport (6 km) so a taxi to your hotel is quite affordable. Expect to pay about US$ 5. Alternatively, you can walk to the main road and get on one of the many mikrolets.
