Oksibil Airport (OKL/WAJO) has connecting flights to Jayapura with Trigana Air Service and Wings Air. The airport's runway is 885 metres (2,904 ft) long and is partially marked asphalt (formerly grass) landing strip.[3] The runway can handle Turboprop STOL aircraft but is able to handle larger Turboprop Regional airliner. There are few buildings that acts as a terminal structure as well as a small tower in the tarmac area beside the runway.


In August 2015, Trigana Air Flight 267 crashed on the mountain side en route to the airstrip, killing all 54 on board.[4]

In August 2018, another plane crash occurred, when a Pilatus PC-6 Porter traveling from Tanah Merah crashed shortly before it was due to land in Oksibil. It was carrying nine people, including two crew members, and one passenger survived.[5][6]
