Banywuangi, a small town that is not too small which is located at the eastern of java. Maybe you didn’t know if this town has an airport. Or you never know Banyuwangi? What?? Yes I see.

Why a small town of Banyuwangi have an airport? Because it need an airport and have an amazing tourism. Tourism of what? There is mount, beach,plantation and others . FYI Banyuwangi has a Mount Ijen, and the crater has the largest in Indonesia and it has a Blufire, there is only 2 bluefire at the world. That’s it? No, it’s still have a second beautiful wave at the world, Plengkung or G-Land. Next what? Alas Purwo National Park, and Meru Betiri National Park have Sukamade beach which has the famous with the ​​turtle. And many moreee…
How access to Banyuwangi? You can go there by sea, car, bus, train or a plane. But how to go there by a plane? Banyuwangi has a commercial airport Blimbing Sari. Blimbing is a starfruit. His name is really like a fruit. Why? Blimbing Sari is the name of sub-district, so the government gave the name BlimbingSari Airport. Pfffttt

This airport was built about 2 years ago and have flight Surabaya-Banyuwangi return and Banyuwangi-Denpasar return operated by Merpati Airlines. Merpati stopped operation since Januari 2014. But now still have route from Surabaya-Banyuwangi return and operated by Lion Air. Flight everyday, once a day. Start from May 1st Garuda Indonesia operated route Banyuwangi-Surabaya return and Bali-Banyuwangi return.

Anyway, Airport tax at BlimbingSari Airport only IDR 8.000, maybe the cheapest airport tax in the wolrd. Maybe. But don’t call me maybe, because I’m not Carly Rae Japsen :D

This airport can be reached within 40 minutes from the city and located at waterfront.  You can access it by taxi, ojek (if you have a lot of money) or bus. You must be patient while you enter to waiting area, because metal detector still covered. You frisked, you touched. So, security check do manually. This is art of small airport. Therefore, I lost my lighter. Two, yes two lighter.

Merpati, now stop operated
Blimbing Sari airport may not a big airport, but vital for tourism industry. How to go to Banyuwangi? From Bali you can use boat (ferry), only 1 our from Gilimanuk Harbour. From Surabaya you can drive a car or use bus or train for 8 hours. 8 hours not a fast trip. If you don’t have a lot of time you can use plane, only 45 minute. But you must have a lot of money. The ticket not cheap. During you digest my english, enjoy these photo. Painting of nature.
Paddy field, as far as the eye can see 
Taxi is waiting for passengers
Plane not fly too high, even very low. So we could see mountain and sea. Wonderful
Wanna hold the mountain
Islet, shaped like a comma or sperma??
If you wanna pay airport tax only IDR 8000, came here
If you wanna see sunrise, dont come to Japan. So, come here
If you wanna see the sea with white sand as white as the whiteness of the thigh of Miley Cyrus, come here
If you wanna see or eat rambutan, cocoa, mangosteen and cashew or even eat fresh from the tree. So, come here
If you wanna tracking a mountain or just passing, come here
If you don’t want all of the things, easy. Don’t come here.
