Haluoleo service has experienced some service improvement, especially in the presence of 3 aerobridge facilities that facilitate passengers entering the terminal region of departure and arrival airports and heading to and from the aircraft. The airport's apron is now also undergoing expansion and can accommodate eight wide-body aircraft in its class such as the Boeing 737-900ER and Airbus A320.

Currently, Haluoleo service is being pursued as a transit airport for flights in eastern Indonesia, in addition to Hasanuddin Airport Makassar, which is very congested. It is hoped that in the future, with transit in the airport, aircraft operating costs can be reduced because it can save fuel.[2]


In 2011, the apron was expanded from 195x91 square meter to 234x113 square meter. The runway is still being expanded from 2,250 meters to 2,500 meters and completed at the end of 2012.In 2023 Haluoleo Airport Runway will be revitalized from 2,500 meters to 3,100 meters to become an International standard airport .[3]
