International Airport

Soekarno Hatta International Airport at Cengkareng, Tangerang - Banten

The Soekarno Hatta airport has two terminals, further split up into subterminals, which are really just halls in the same building.

Terminal 1 :(A-B-C) is used by domestic airlines except Garuda,

Terminal 2 : International airlines (D-E) and Garuda domestic flights only (F). 

Terminal 3 : Domestic (Air Asia)

To get to the city, the easiest and safest option is to take only "BLUE BIRD GROUP" taxi, starting fare at Rp. 6.000 (read more about Jakarta cab
or contact your hotel to pick you up in the airport.

If you have a flight to catch allow more time to reach the airport because of the traffic (it took nearly 45 minutes to one and half hour just to pass the freeway to Cengkareng) and sometimes the road to and from Cengkareng can be flooded and Indonesia rules and regulation are very rarely enforced in all aspect of life, so if you have question you may want to ask your friends for the Do's and Don'ts in Indonesia airport.

Prepare to put your stuff and belonging at the right bag, make sure liquid product (perfume, lotion, etc) more than 50ml has to be put in your baggage or the airport staff might just confiscate your belongings. 50ml means

When you fly back from Indonesia, prepare Rp. 150.000,-/person for an international airport tax and Rp. 75,000,- for domestic airport tax, to be paid at the immigration counter in Airport. It has to be in Indonesian currency and cash only.
