Get in

By plane

Meulaboh's tiny Cut Nyak Dien Airport lies just a few kilometres outside town. Currently, however, only charter flights carrying mostly aid workers land at this airport. The airport is named after a local heroine who fought against the Dutch colonists during Indonesia's struggle for independence.

You can arrive into Meulaboh via a 3 times a day scheduled flight from Medan with Susi Air.
