Manokwari Airport Nov 21, 2010
A tiny airport I have ever been to that operated completely normal just like any other regional airports that can serve a 737 class aircraft on one tiny runway at the same time. The runway was so very close to the airport. Passengers just walked casually to the plane. The plane sat only a few feet away from the parking lot of the airport. The airport was only one building – no, actually it must have been a house that had been flipped to an airport. The arrival/departure/baggage claim/checkin area is one tiny room of about 12X18 sq feet. Each time an airline arrived, which was probably three times a day, the whole airport went into a functioning commotion. The airport staff would yell people’s names so real loud I was wondering what was going on. Then it turned out that the airport had no baggage carousel system/ The only system they had was the baggage yelling system. They yell your name, you come up and claim your baggage. How simple! It cracked me up I couldn’t help it. The whole time there is an official who guarded the front/exit door. There was only only one door that operated as the airport entrance and exit. The door was locked. The guard was the one who could unlock the door to let people out and locked the door back in behind them. It is a simple philosophy. If you have no business whatsoever in the airport, you are not allowed inside the airport.
