Juanda International Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Internasional Juanda) (IATA: SUBICAO: WARR), is an international airport located in Sidoarjo, a small town near Surabaya, East Java. This airport serves Surabaya and surrounding areas. Juanda International Airport is operated by PT Angkasa Pura I. The airport takes its name after Djuanda Kartawidjaja, the last Prime Minister of Indonesia who had suggested development of this airport. Juanda International Airport is the second-busiest airport in Indonesia after Jakarta Soekarno–Hatta International Airport based on the aircraft movements and passenger movements, but only the third-largest airport in Indonesia, after Kuala Namu International Airport which operated on 25 July 2013. In 2010, the airport handled 11 million passengers, although the capacity was 6 million passengers and the Air Traffic Controller radar system is only able to track 21 aircraft per hour, but at peak hour should handled 40 to 45 aircraft landing and taking off.[1] In 2013, the airport serves about 400 aircraft per day.[2]

Currently, Juanda International Airport is the hub of Citilink, Garuda Indonesia, Indonesia AirAsia and Lion Air along with Soekarno–Hatta International Airport. Juanda International Airport will become one of the main airports in Indonesia for ASEAN Open skies.[3]

In 2015, Juanda International Airport becomes the world's 10th best in Airport Service Quality by Airport Council International among 79 airports with passengers capacity between 5-15 million a year.[4]


Opened in 1964 as a naval air base of Indonesia. It replaces the previous airport in Morokrembangan, near Tanjung Perak harbor. It was originally used as home base for Indonesian Navy's fleet of Ilyushin Il-28 and Fairey Gannet. In its development it was also used for civil aviation. And PT Angkasa Pura I handled the management and operation since January 1985. On December 24, 1990 Juanda Airport was gained international airport status after the opening of the international terminal. Previously, since December 1987, the airport has served flights to Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and Manila.[5]

Airport development[edit]

A new three-story terminal building was opened on 10 November 2006. The building has a capacity of eight million passengers per year and features a 51,500-square-metre (554,000 sq ft) domestic passenger terminal, a 20,200-square-metre (217,000 sq ft) international terminal and 11 airbridges. There is a single runway of 3,000 by 55 metres (9,843 ft × 180 ft), separate 5,300-square-metre (57,000 sq ft) administration building, including a 15-story control tower, and a two-storey cargo building with domestic and international cargo sections, capable of handling 120,000 tonnes (120,000 long tons; 130,000 short tons) of cargo a year. The terminal used a mix of high hat roofs from Rumah adat Sumba as well as Java-Malay architecture themes.

The new apron with an area of 148,000 square metres (1,590,000 sq ft) can handle 18 aircraft simultaneously, including two wide body, 11 medium and five small aircraft. There are two 3,000-by-30-metre (9,843 ft × 98 ft) parallel taxiways, including five exit taxiways (30 m wide) and four connecting taxiways (also 30 m).

The old terminal building has been demolished and became the new Terminal 2, which opened on 14 February 2014. The architecture of T2 is modern with curved features when compared to Terminal 1.

On February 25, 2015, Indonesia President has agreed to develop Juanda Airport City which consists such as additional 2 runways becomes triple runways. Integrated connection between Gubeng railway station with the airport uses elevated railway. The projects will be built soon with coordination of Central Government, Province Government and City Government, including the funding and predicted will be finished in 2019 due to overcapacity of 17.2 million passengers in 2014, while the current capacity is only for 12.5 million passengers.[6][7]


The following are statistics for the airport from 1999 to 2013. In addition to this, it is noted that, in 2006, the domestic sector between Surabaya and Jakarta is the fourth-busiest air route in Asia with over 750 weekly flights.
