Jakarta Hatta (CGK) Airport

Jakarta Hatta CGK Airport Overview

Jakarta Hatta International Airport CGK - also referred to as SHIA, Soetta or  'Cengkareng' - serves the greater City of Jakarta in the Republic of Indonesia, and is this country's primary airport - operated by Angkasa Pura II (which also operates the Juanda and Ngurah Rai airports). 'SHIA' has been voted as having the most on-time flights.

SHIA Airport is located in Tangeran, Banten, 20 km from the capital City of Jakarta, on the densely-populated island of Java, Indonesia, and is accessible from Jakarta's city center by the Soedyatmo Expressway and by rail from the Manggarai station, Jakarta' central station.

With two very long runways and an esimated yearly passenger count of over 55 milion, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is served by a host of domestic and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

Unless you are using the new rail service (one line linking Manggarai in S.Jakarta to Tanggerang (Banten province) before heading north to the Airport; the other line stretching from Manggarai through Pluit in North Jakarta before going west to the Airport) - it is strongly recommended that you allow at least one hour to get to the airport from central Jakarta; however, after 4pm on any day, but especially a Friday, allow 90 minutes. Coming into Jakarta from another city, try to arrive after 9am to avoid the rush hour, as morning commute from the Airport to Jakarta can take 2-3 hrs due frequent flooding, roadwork, etc., and the fact that there is only one road leading into the City.

On-Airport Hotels:
The Jakarta Airport Hotel is on level 2 of Terminal 2, between Concourses D & F (entrance at east end of complex).
The Sasana Angkasa Transit Hotel is in Terminal 1A

Jakarta-Hatta Airport has three passenger terminals - T1, T2 & T3.

Present & Future Airport Developments:  (According to the JakartaGlobe)
1. The Airport is getting a $1.37 billion face-lift - intended to make Soekarno-Hatta a world-class airport by 2015.  Ground breaking was July 2012, and the first phase of construction includes expansion of Terminal 3, access road, & integrated building linking all 3 terminals - schedule to be completed by the end of 2014.  An automated transportation system will link terminals, shopping mall and hotel. Upon completion of the expansion project the airport should be able to handle 60 million passengers per annum.

2. Furthermore, work started in 2013 on a monorail service connecting Soekarno-Hatta Airport in Tanggerang with the neighboring city of South Tanggerang.  A total of 14 shelters (including shelters at Terminals 1,2 & 3) are planned along the monorail line, to connect the Airport and the subdistrict of Serpong in South Tangerang. Completion should be some time in 2014.
3. Also, land purchases are to be accelerated for the construction of a third runway and a fourth terminal.
