Cakung Airport (IATA: BCH, ICAO: WPEC) is an unattended airport located 6.5 km (4 miles) west of Baucau, a city in East Timor (Timor-Leste).

Under Portuguese rule, Baucau Airport, which has a much longer runway than Dili's Airport was used for international flights, including those of TAA from Australia. Following the Indonesian invasion in 1975, this was taken over by the Indonesian military and closed to civilian traffic.
