Sam Ratulangi International Airport , also known as Manado International Airport, is located in North Sulawesi, 13 km northeast of Manado. The airport is named after the Minahasan educator and independence hero Sam Ratulangi. It is designated as one of the 11 main entry ports to Indonesia by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture of Indonesia and serves as the main gateway to the Bunaken National Marine Park.

Construction began in 1998 on a new terminal with funds from the Asian Development Bank and Government of Indonesia. It cost US$ 7,6 million to develop the terminal's air side section and US$ 13 million to build its land side section. In 2001, the new terminal opened featuring 21 check-in counters, 5 gates, 4 airbridges, 2 baggage claim belts and an outdoor waving gallery on top of the 3-story terminal building. Its 4,044 m2 international passenger terminal may serve up to 183,000 passengers annually while the 14,126 m2 domestic passenger terminal serves up to 1,3 million passengers/year. During peak hours the terminal may serve up to 2,816 passengers simultaneously. The 2650 m x 45 m runway and 2650 m x 23 m parallel taxiway are designed to accommodate Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 wide body aircraft. The 54,300 m2 apron can hold up to 4 wide body aircraft and 11 medium and small body aircraft.
