Basic information about Airai
Airai, located on the southern coast of Babeldaob island, is the second-most populous state of Palau. It contains the country's chief airport, Roman Tmetuchl International Airport, and is connected by the Koror-Babeldaob Bridge to nearby Koror Island. The state has an area of 44 km² (17 mi²), and a total population of 2700 as of 2004, the second largest in the country. Airai is also the name of the biggest town in the state, with a population of 920 people as of 2004. The town of Airai is the largest town in Palau outside of the state of Koror. Airai is most notable for its Bai (men's meeting house), being the oldest one in existence, dating back 200 years. The turbulent rains of Palau did not treat ancient Palaun architecture kindly. Airai is more inland/mountainous-jungle and therefore more of a bedroom community[clarification needed] than anything else.

Roman Tmetuchl International AirportRoman Tmetuchl International Airport (IATA: ROR, ICAO: PTRO, FAA LID: ROR) is the main airport of Palau. It is located near the former capital Koror, just north of Airai on Babelthuap (Babeldaob) island. The airport is 6 miles (4 km) from Koror and 15 miles (25 km) from Melekeok. A resolution adopted by the Senate of Palau in May 2006 renamed Palau International Airport as the Roman Tmetuchl International Airport, in honor of late local politician and businessman Roman Tmetuchl. It is also known as Babelthuap/Koror Airport or Airai Airport.Show on map
