Airports in Jakarta

Soekarno-Hatta Jakarta International Airport (CGK)


Situated on the island of Java, just west of Jakarta, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (SHIA) is an important regional aerial hub and a popular international entry point to Indonesia. Soekarno-Hatta International Airport was ranked in 2014 as the 8th busiest airport worldwide when it served over 62 million passengers.

With three terminals housing many passenger amenities including restaurants, cafés, shops and duty-free zones, SHIA is set to expand even further to include a fourth terminal building and a general refurbishment of all existing terminals. This constant development ensures that SHIA is always striving to offer passengers as smooth an experience as possible.


The airport is situated 12 miles (20km) northwest of Jakarta.
