Papua is the largest province in Indonesia. It covers an area of 316,552.6 km2. Papua Province consists of 28 regencies and one city, with a population of 4.03 million in 2020. The main mode of transportation as a link between regions in this province is air transportation, in addition to the development of sea transportation through the Sea Toll program and land transportation with the construction of the Trans Papua Road. This study takes the point of view of the transportation network, especially for air transportation, as the mode of choice backbone of the logistics distribution in the Papua area. Considering these conditions, this study considers that the airport is a logistics node, so it is necessary to inventory the number of airports in Papua Province. The method of this study was the shortest path which was included in a network model for determining the shortest and various routes. It analyzed the answers to questions such as which one will be the shortest, fastest, or cheapest route to go to a location and determined locations for logistics facilities, such as distribution centers and warehouses. The study's results were the object of this research is the airport listed on the website. Analysis of the shortest route between airports in the Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Route Papua area network produced a distance matrix between airports. It resulted four scenarios of the number of airports and their respective service areas.
