The format is likely to be very similar

I could not find a good bird eye view, this is the best I can find :(

Welcome to “Official” Guide of Medan-Kualanamu International Airport. Medan-Kualanamu International Airport is an airport constructed approximately 23km northeast of Medan city, the 5th biggest airport in Indonesia. It replaced the old Medan-Polonia International Airport, which was closed due to lack of space for expansion.

PS: Arilines marked with * do not have livery in IF.
PPS: Some airlines serve the regional islands using Q400 or ATR72 and as there are quite a number of airports served, it is eliminated for simplicity. Except for Silangit-Lake Toba Airport :p (I mean look at how beautiful it is)

Airport Layout

As WIMM is considered small airport internationally (hahaha), I couldn’t find any chart. So hopefully the screenshot below from IF will do :)


Figure 1


Figure 2. Take note of possible conflict as aircraft entering and exiting gates

Section Gate Destination (in reality)
A GATE 01-10 International Remote Stand and Private Jets
B GATE 11-14 International Gate
C GATE 15 Rarely Used
C GATE 33-26 Domestic Gate (order left-right is 33, 32, … till 26
D GATE 16-25 Domestic Remote Stand, mostly used for non-jets and GA
E CARGO 34-36 Cargo Terminal

IFATC Guide

As this is a small airport, it has only one frequency for each service:
ATIS 126.30 – Ground 130.30 – Tower 118.60 – Approach 119.70
WIMM falls under Jakarta Center (127.00, 128.00, 129.00)
Runway in use: 05 or 23 (both have ILS, 12314x196ft)

No terrain and special procedures needed, just need to take note of possible conflict as above :)

In conclusion

This guide was made as Indonesia was featured today (12SEP20) and Medan-Kualanamu Intl Airport was one of them. Expect me to control WIMM sometime today :)

Thank you for reading this guide and enjoy your flight :)

This is my first official guide. Any feedback is welcomed on improving future guides that I plan to create (if any)

I like those guides to airports.
Nice one, just one thing:
Airport Information Package for Indonesia can be obtained from the official source at https://aimindonesia.dephub.go.id/index.php
The required Acount is free of charge.

Aerodrome chart:


Docking charts, SID, STAR, Ground movement charts, it is all available for free despite been a “small” international airport.

It is that time of the day again a.k.a. IFATC at Home. So yeah I will be opening this airport😉

Likely time will be around 0900Z-1000Z. As a bonus, since I have just passed Officer now, I will be opening either Local (Ground, Tower, ATIS) or Radar (Approach, Departure, ATIS) or even Center 😍 do drop by for my first radar session at my home airport and feel free to do radar patterns😁
