Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Internasional Soekarno–Hatta) (IATA: CGKICAO: WIII), abbreviated SHIA[4] or Soetta,[5] is the primary airport serving the greater Jakarta and area on the island of Java, Indonesia. Named after the first president and vice-president of Indonesia, Soekarno and Mohammad Hatta, the airport is located in Cengkareng, Tangerang, a district approximately 20 km northwest of Jakarta, earning it its nickname Cengkareng Airport by locals, and its three-letter IATA designator: "CGK".

Beginning operations in 1985 to replace the aged and over-capacitated Kemayoran Airport for domestic flights, the airport was expanded in 1991 to replace Halim Perdanakusuma International Airport, the second airport serving the Jakarta area on internatioal flights, itself having been commissioned as a temporary solution until Soekarno-Hatta was completed. Kemayoran Airport has since been torn down and it is now a residential area, while Halim still serves charter, VIP, private, and more recently re-opened to commercial domestic traffic to relieve Soekarno-Hatta, which runs over-capacity due to a rapid travel boom in Indonesia.

With an original design capacity of just 22 million passengers a year (38 million after renovations and expansions), Soekarno-Hatta runs at nearly triple its intended limit, welcoming 62 million passengers in 2014, making it the 8th busiest airport in the world, and the busiest airport in the Southern Hemisphere. It boasts nonstop flights to a large number of destinations in Asia and Australia, and several flights to Europe each day, ranking as the 17th most connected airport in the world, and the largest megahub in Asia according to OAG.[6]

Although the airport is running over capacity, on May 4, 2012, after a survey from April 23 to May 3, the Airport Council International (ACI) stated that Soekarno–Hatta International Airport is clearly being operated safely.[7] On August 2, 2012, the ground-breaking ceremony for Terminal 3 was held in order to transform the airport into an "Aerotropolis" airport with a capacity of 62 million passengers a year, initially expected to be completed in 2015, though it has since been delayed to 2016.[8] A third, 3,660-by-60-metre (12,010 ft × 200 ft), parallel runway is planned to begin construction sometime in 2015 to increase its capacity to 430,000 airplanes a year, costing 4 trillion rupiah,[9] although it has not yet started construction due to lengthy negotiations with landowners. A fourth runway is planned to begin operations by 2024 to accommodate 550,000 aircraft traffic in 2025.[10] The two existing runways suffer from pavement and strength issues, which limits the airport's capacity to serve large aircraft: the Airbus A380 cannot feasibly serve the airport, while Garuda Indonesia's own 777-300ERs are limited in capacity when serving long-haul flights to Europe, which caused the airline to introduce an intermediate stop on some of its flights to Amsterdam. The airport struggles to accommodate all flights at its current limit of 72 planes per hour, frequently forming long lines to take off and land, despite this, some within the airport's operator want to reduce the number to 64 an hour, while airlines, particularly those frequently affected with delays due to heavy traffic, are lobbying to increase the capacity to 84 planes an hour. Although difficult, it is not impossible; Heathrow Airport in London serves over 100 planes an hour with its two parallel runways.


Used between 1928 and 1985, Kemayoran Airfield was considered unsatisfactory[when?] because it was too close to the major Halim Perdanakusuma Indonesian military airport. The civil airspace in the area became increasingly restricted, while air traffic increased rapidly, posing problems for international air traffic. In 1969, a senior communication officers meeting in Bangkok expressed these concerns.[citation needed]

Departure area at Terminal 2

In the early 1970s, with the help of USAID, eight potential locations were analyzed for a new international airport, namely Kemayoran, Malaka, Babakan, Jonggol, Halim, Curug, South Tangerang and North Tangerang.[citation needed] Finally, the North Tangerang site was chosen; it was also noted that Jonggol could be used as an alternative airfield. Meanwhile, as an interim step, the Indonesian government upgraded the Halim Perdanakusumah airfield for use for passenger services. The old Kemayoran site was closed in 1985, and the land was later used for commercial and housing purposes.[11]

Between 1974 and 1975, a Canadian consultant/consortium, consisting of Aviation Planning Services Ltd., ACRESS International Ltd., and Searle Wilbee Rowland (SWR), won a bid for the new airport feasibility project. The feasibility study started on 20 February 1974, with a total cost of 1 million Canadian dollars. The one-year project proceeded with an Indonesian partner represented by PT Konavi. By the end of March 1975, the study revealed a plan to build three inline runways, three international terminal buildings, three domestic buildings and one building for Hajj flights. Three stores for the domestic terminals would be built between 1975 and 1981 at a cost of US$465 million and one domestic terminal including an apron from 1982–1985 at a cost of US$126 million. A new terminal project, named the Jakarta International Airport Cengkareng, began.[12]


Tropical garden fill the spaces between Javanese-styled pendopo waiting and boarding pavilions.

The airport's terminal 1 and 2 was designed by Paul Andreu, a French architect who also designed Paris–Charles de Gaulle Airport. One of the characteristics of the airport is the incorporation of the local architecture into the design, and the presence of tropical gardens between the waiting lounges. These unique characteristics earned the airport the 1995 Aga Khan Award for Architecture.[13] The runways run northeast–southwest. There are two parallel runways, on the north and south side. The airport terminal took the plan of spanning fan, with the main entrances of terminals connected to a series of waiting and boarding pavilions via corridors. These waiting and boarding pavilions are connected to the airplanes through boarding bridges. Terminal 1 is in the southern side of the airport, while Terminal 2 and 3 are on the north side.

The airport concept is described as "garden within the airport" or "airport in the garden", as tropical decorative and flower plants fill the spaces between corridors, waiting and boarding pavilions. The boarding pavilions demonstrate local Indonesian vernacular architecture, particularly the roof, in the Javanese stepped-roof pendopo and joglo style. The interior design displays the diversity of Indonesian art and culture, with ethnic decorative elements taken from wooden carvings of Java, Bali, Sumatra, Dayak, Toraja to Papua. Another example is the railings of stairs, doors and gates, which show the kala-makara (giant head and mythical fish-elephant creature) theme typical in ancient Indonesian temples such as Borobudur. Terminal 3, however, has a different architectural style—unlike the ethnic-inspired Indonesian vernacular architecture of terminals 1 and 2, terminal 3 uses the contemporary modern style of large glass windows with metal frames and columns.

Project phases

To allocate the land and also determine the provincial border,[clarification needed] time was needed. Authorities at Amsterdam Schiphol airport were consulted about the airport plans, and concluded that the proposal was rather expensive and over-designed. The cost rose because of using a decentralized system. The centralized system was seen as a more suitable option.

The team chose a decentralized system similar to Orly Airport, Lyon Satolas, Hannover Airport and Kansas City Airport due to its simplicity and effectiveness.

On 12 November 1976, the building project tender was won by the French Aeroport de Paris.

On 18 May 1977, the final design was agreed on by the Indonesian government and Aeroport de Paris with a fixed cost of about 22,323,203 French francs and Rp. 177,156,000 equivalent to 2,100,000 francs. The work was scheduled to take 18 months. The government appointed PT. Konavi as the local partner. The plan included 2 runways with taxiways, one access road in the east and one in the west (closed to public use) for airport services, 3 terminals capable of accommodating 3 million passengers per year, and 1 module for international flights and 2 for domestic. "An airport inside a garden" was chosen as the design idea.

On 20 May 1980, a four-year contract was signed. Sainraptet Brice, SAE, Colas together with PT. Waskita Karya were chosen to be the developers. Ir. Karno Barkah MSc. was appointed the project director, responsible for the airport's construction.[14]

On 1 December 1980, the Indonesian government signed a contract for Rp. 384.8 billion with developers. The cost structure was: Rp. 140,450,513,000 from the state budget, 1,223,457 francs donated by France and US$15,898,251 from the USA.

On 1 December 1984, the airport structure was completed.

The new airport opened on 1 May 1985 for domestic flights.

The second circular terminal was opened on 1 May 1991 for international operations.

Phases of Soekarno–Hatta International Airport Project
Phase Year Description Status
Phase 1 1985 Opening of Terminal 1 with a capacity of 9 million passengers per annum Completed
Phase 2 1991 Opening of Terminal 2 with a capacity of 18 million passengers per annum Completed
Phase 3 2011 Construction of Terminal 3 phase 1 with a capacity of 22 million passengers per annum Completed
Refurbishing of Terminal 2 to increase capacity to 53 million passengers per annum In progress
Fully built new Freight Terminal Pending
Phase 4 2017 Completion of Terminal 3 with a capacity of 43 million passengers per annum In progress
Construction of Airport Railway In progress
Fully built integrated building[clarification needed] In Progress
Construction of Terminal 4 In Progress
Phase 5 2022 Refurbishment of Terminal 1 to increase capacity to 62 million passengers per annum Pending


In the newest masterplan, the capacity of the airport is to be increased from 22 million passengers per annum to 62 million per annum in 2014. The airport will use new theme "Modern Airport With Traditional Sense" for the project. Angkasa Pura II, as the operator, designed Soekarno–Hatta Airport to have 3 passenger terminals, 1 new freight terminal (cargo village) and an 'Integrated Building' (designed to unite terminal one and two) in 2014. Also, there will be an increase in apron capacity from 125 airplanes to 174 airplanes. By 2015, additional upgrades are expected to increase the airport's capacity to 75 million passengers.[15] An airport train from Manggarai Station and a people mover for ground transportation to/from and inside the airport are also in planning.

Angkasa Pura II will spend Rp.11.7 trillion ($1.36 billion) to change the airport into a 'world class' airport which will be called 'aerotropolis', by 2014. In the first stage, Terminal 3 will be expanded and thereafter Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 will be integrated with green walls[clarification needed] and the airport will have a convention hall, shopping center, hotel, playground, recreational facilities and parking area for 20,000 vehicles.[16]

To anticipate a surge in passenger numbers, at least a ten percent increase each year, the government is preparing to build a third runway. This was planned to be completed in 2017. If the airport has 3 runways, the service capacity will rise to 623,420 movements per year and it will be able to anticipate growth at least until 2030. The expansion will use about 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) from 10 villages in the Teluk Naga and Kosambi subdistricts.[17][18] The expansion plan has been rejected by Tangerang Municipal Government because the residents living around the airport wouldn't be able to earn income for their family. The local government offered another location such as in Balaraja, but Angkasa Pura II corporate secretary said that building a new airport would not be an easy task, as it requires a thorough study.[19]

Due to lack of space to further expand at Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, the government plans to build a new airport around Cikarang and Karawang. The airport would be integrated with the planned Cilamaya International Seaport in Karawang.[20]


The land area of the airport is 18 square kilometres (6.9 sq mi). It has two independent parallel 3,600-metre (11,800 ft) long runways connected by two cross taxiways. There are three main terminal buildings; Terminal 1 (domestic flights only), Terminal 2 (international flights and Garuda Indonesia domestic flights) and Terminal 3, Pier 1 (AirAsia international and domestic flights). There is also a freight terminal for domestic and international cargo.

Soekarno–Hatta International Airport has 180 check-in counters, 36 baggage carousels and 45 gates. The sub-terminals (1A, 1B, 1C, 2D, 2E, and 2F) have 25 check-in counters, 5 baggage carousels and 7 gates each. Terminal 3 has 30 check-in counters, 6 baggage carousels and 3 gates.

Terminal 1

Terminal 1 is the first terminal built, finished in 1985. It is located on the south side of the airport, across from Terminal 2. Terminal 1 has 3 sub-terminals, each equipped with 25 check-in counters, 5 baggage carousels and 7 gates. It has the capacity to handle 9 million passengers per annum. The gates in Terminal 1 have a prefix of A, B or C. The gates are A1–A7, B1–B7 and C1–C7. In the newest masterplan, Terminal 1 will have its capacity increased to 18 million passengers per annum. Terminal 1 is used for domestic flights except for those operated by Garuda Indonesia.

Terminal 2

Check In Area Terminal 2

Terminal 2 was the second terminal built, completed in 1991, and is located on the northern side of the airport, across from Terminal 1. Like Terminal 1, it has three sub-terminals, labeled D through F, each with seven gates and 25 check-in counters. Terminal 2D is home to all international operations out of Soekarno-Hatta, while Terminals 2E and F are home to Garuda Indonesia and SkyTeam members, the former for international flights and the latter for domestic flights.[21]

With a capacity of 9 million passengers per annum, Terminal 2 is struggling to keep up with the increasing number of passengers that travel through it each day. Expansions and upgrades will increase the capacity to 19 million per annum, while the opening of Terminal 3 Ultimate, which will house Garuda Indonesia and SkyTeam, will help to relieve the over-capacity problem at Terminal 2.

Terminal 3

The first phase of terminal 3, located on the eastern side of the airport, consisting of the first of the two planned piers, opened on April 15, 2009. The terminal has a different style than terminals 1 and 2, using an eco-friendly modern design. It currently houses the AirAsia Group, and Lion Air (only to Denpasar/Bali). With a capacity of 4 million passengers per annum, terminal 3 has 30 check-in counters, 6 baggage carousels and 3 gates with two jet bridges. In the newest master plan, Terminal 3 will be designed in a U shape with a total capacity of 25 million passengers per annum and an area of 354,000 square metres (3,810,000 sq ft), compared to the current 34,000-square-metre (370,000 sq ft) area, and will have A380-capable gates.[22] The first phase of Terminal 3 expansion will be finished in May 2016 and the second/final expansion will be finished in December 2016.[23] T3 expansion area will span 1.2 kilometers and the T3 apron can serve 40 aircraft. When finished, T3 will be an aerotropolis terminal.[24]

Current capacity of T1, T2 and T3 is 22 million passengers a year, but today passengers has over 57 million a year. After T3 expansion is finished, the total capacity of three terminals become 43 million passengers a year, so T1 and T2 will be revitalized, so all the three terminals finally will accommodate 67 million passengers a year. The T3 expansion also can serve 60 airplanes from the current 40 airplanes.[25]

Terminal 3 officially opened for international flights on November 15, 2011, when Indonesia AirAsia started using Terminal 3 as its new base for international flights as well as domestic flights.[26] Immigration has cancelled the policy to close immigration counter in Terminal 3 and immigration counter in Terminal 3 is still operational, but plan to centralized immigration counter in Terminal 2 only is still valid.[27]

When Terminal 3 Ultimate is opened, it would be solely used by Garuda Indonesia, in addition to other SkyTeam members, and all current low cost airlines using the Terminal 3 will move into Terminal 1.

Terminal 4

Terminal 4, planned to be constructed east of Terminal 1 and south of the Freight Terminal, is expected to be completed by 2022 the latest. It will be constructed by Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corporation of South Korea and Buckeridge Group of Companies of Australia.

Freight Terminal

The freight terminal is located on the east side of terminal 1. This terminal was used to handle cargo at the Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, both domestic and international cargo. In the newest master plan, the freight terminal will move to the west side of terminal 2 and have a larger capacity than the current terminal.

Traffic and statistics

New traffic procedure

To ease congestion, the airport authority implemented a new traffic procedure, the 72 Improved Runway Capacity (IRC 72), to handle 72 planes per hour. This limited a plane to 30–45 minutes only for arrival and unloading of passengers, to allow other planes to use the parking space. Gradually it has been implemented and on June 26, 2014 IRC 72 has been implemented full for the period of 00:00am to 01:30am, 02:00am to 10:00am and 11:30pm to 00:00am with occupancy periods for aircraft are reduced from 110 seconds to 90 seconds of takeoff and from 65 seconds to 50 seconds for landing. The low time is from 04:00pm to 10:00pm with only maximum 32 flights/hour.[35] By 2015, IRC 72 will become IRC 86 with the opening of the new terminal.[36] As a comparison, London Heathrow Airport, which has 2 runways like SHIA, can handle 100 flights per hour, so the target for SHIA has been revised to 92 flights per hour by 2015.[37]

The airport is connected to Jakarta's city center via the Prof. Dr. Sedyatmo Toll Road. There is extensive car parking, including long-stay facilities, at the airport.


In July 2011, the government has assigned PT Kereta Api to establish a railway that connect the Manggarai Station to the Airport via Tangerang, which would cost Rp.2.25 trillion ($250 million). A 7-kilometre (4.3 mi) section of track will be built to connect the KRL Jabotabek station in Tangerang and the airport. The existing single-track commuter line between Manggarai and Tanah Tinggi will be dual-tracked. The commuter line will connect Manggarai station, Sudirman, Tanah Abang, Duri, Grogol, Bojong Indah, Kalideres, Tanah Tinggi and Soekarno–Hatta International Airport.[45] The train will enter behind the airport through its M1 gate before entering the airport.[46] In early October 2014, M1 gate has been closed to commence the project.[47] The station will be located between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 which both terminals and the station will be connected with a 7 story building with 20,000 parking spots as an Integrated Building.[48] Automated People Mover Systems is used to connect Terminal 3 with Integrated Building and Cargo Terminal.[49] The station has 7,200 square meters area and has capacity of 2,000 passengers in peron and 1,500 passengers in ticketing counter, public hall, tapping gate in, waiting lounge, and commercial area. The New Sudirman Station will be built in front of Shangrila Hotel with ample parking. The railway is due to begin operating in April 2016, with the journey from Manggarai to the airport taking 57 minutes.[50][51]

The government is also planning a 33-kilometre (21 mi) express line between the Manggarai station and the airport via Angke and Pluit to be built by an investor as a public–private partnership.[52][53] To realize the demand from the Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, the route has been extended from Manggarai to Halim and the new route has been agreed upon by the Transportation Ministry Regulation. The express train will take 30 minutes to connect the airports.[54] In early 2015, government changed the fund from participation to not funding at all, so the contract for Rp 28 billion will be revised, including new rail express tariff.[55]

Accidents & Incidents

  • On October 28, 1997, a Trigana Air Service Fokker F-28 Fellowship 3000 passenger plane returned to land at Jakarta–Soekarno–Hatta International Airport after the aircraft experienced technical problems two minutes after takeoff. Smoke and severe heat had entered cockpit and the passenger cabin. The airplane sustained damage due to the heat.[56]
  • On January 23, 2003, a Star Air Boeing 737 touched down 500 metres (1,600 ft) past the threshold of runway 25L, a little left of the centreline, at a time of heavy rainfall with associated heavy winds. It went off the side of the runway, causing substantial damage to the aircraft's undercarriage and belly.[57]
  • On August 11, 2003, a Garuda Indonesia Fokker F-28 Fellowship 3000R suffered a left main gear collapse after a flight from Surabaya.[58]
  • On March 9, 2009, a Lion Air MD-90 overran runway 25L, due to an unstable approach 100 metres (330 ft) before the runway in rainfall and strong winds, in which the aircraft touched down to the left of the centerline. Although its thrust reversers were functioning, it veered to the right, resulting in the aircraft resting 90 degrees off the runway.[59]
