Jakarta Hatta (CGK) Airport

Jakarta Hatta CGK Airport Overview

Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport CGK - also referred to as SHIA - serves the greater City of Jakarta on the densely populated island of Java - 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).  In terms of passenger count, the Airport has moved up to number 8 among world-wide airports. 'SHIA' has been voted as having the most on-time flights, and Skytrax placed it in 2014 at number 4 among the World's Most Improved Airports.  However, until the 'new' Terminal 3's extensive renovations have been completed  - it will still suffer from overcrowding.

SHIA Airport is located in Tangeran, Banten, 20 km from the capital City of Jakarta, 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:
1. The Airport is getting a $1.37 billion face-lift - intended to make Soekarno-Hatta a world-class airport by 2015.  Its first phase of construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014,. The entire project includes expansion of Terminal 3 (and some at T2), access road, & integrated building linking all 3 terminals, and an automated transportation system will link terminals, shopping mall and hotel.
