Adisutjipto (or Adisucipto) International Airport (Indonesian: Bandar Udara Internasional Adisutjipto) (IATA: JOG, ICAO: WAHH) is the principal airport serving the Yogyakarta area on the island of Java, Indonesia. It is in the Sleman Regency, in the Yogyakarta Special Region, on the northeast outskirts of the city, near the Prambanan historic temple site. It has one runway, with dimensions of 2,200 metres (7,200 ft) by 45 metres (148 ft). The airport is about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from the city center. Adisutjipto Airport is the 4th busiest airport in the region of Java–Bali, after Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (CGK) in Jakarta, Juanda International Airport (SUB) in Surabaya and Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Bali. The number of passengers flying through Adisucipto International Airport in Yogyakarta, throughout 2016 increased by approximately 13 percent compared to 2015. 7.2 million passengers were recorded in 2016 whereas in 2015, the number was 6.38 million.

Adisutjipto Airport was preceded by a landing ground at Maguwo which was used before and during the Second World War. It is named after Agustinus Adisucipto, a pilot who was killed during an attack on Maguwo by the Dutch on 29 July 1947, when his flight, the Dakota VT-CLA, was shot down. The airport was heavily damaged by the 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake and had to be closed for two days. Some parts of the runway were cracked, and the departure lounge collapsed. Most flights were cancelled or rerouted to Adisumarmo International Airport, Solo. After the airport returned to service on 30 May 2006, all passengers used the international lounge until the new domestic departure lounge was ready. During this period, passenger comfort was affected as the international lounge was designed only for about 100 passengers at a time. The airport was closed for several days due to the 2010 Mount Merapi eruption as the volcanic ash could endanger the safety of flights. During this period, passengers were diverted to Adisumarmo International Airport in Solo, Achmad Yani International Airport in Semarang, or transferred to another mode of transportation to the city of Yogyakarta.

International routes[edit]

Adisutjipto Airport's Entrance

Before Adisutjipto became an international airport, Yogyakarta relied on Bali and Jakarta for its international flights. It became an international airport on 21 February 2004 with the first flight, to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, operated by the Indonesian flag carrier Garuda Indonesia. This was the successful conclusion to the city's efforts of over 30 years to have its own international airport. One month later, Garuda Indonesia operated its second international flight, to Singapore. Due to low demand, Garuda Indonesia ceased international flights from the airport on November 2006. International flights resumed on 30 January 2008 when AirAsia began to fly the Yogyakarta–Kuala Lumpur route using Airbus A320 aircraft. From 1 February 2008, Malaysia Airlines started to serve the Yogyakarta–Kuala Lumpur route operating Boeing 737-400 aircraft but ceased operation in 2011. In April 2008 AirAsia raised the frequency of its YogyakartaKuala Lumpur flights from four times weekly to daily.[1] In December 2008, Garuda Indonesia resumed its Yogyakarta–Singapore flight, operating three times weekly but ceased in 2009. AirAsia started to fly a YogyakartaSingapore flight on 24 March 2009, operating daily. SilkAir, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, began operating Yogyakarta-Singapore route from 25 October 2013 and now operates daily services using Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A320-200 aircraft between the two cities.


Adisutjipto Airport's Domestic Departure Lounge

Adisucipto is being redeveloped to cope with the increasing number of passengers. The location of this airport is unusual since the terminal is only about 10 metres from a railway line. A long-range plan has been developed to build Adisucipto as a "fused terminal" by building a railway station and bus terminal in the airport. There is still a problem of limited availability of land. An underpass connecting the terminal building and a new carpark (to the north of the railway) has been completed. The construction of the new Maguwo Station to the north of the airport has also been completed. In August 2015, a new Terminal B was open for operation. The new terminal handles all international traffic and the domestic service of some low-cost carriers. There are plans to lengthen the runway by 300 metres (980 ft) to the east. The runway will then be 2,500 metres (8,200 ft) in length. Plans also call to widen the apron so that it will be able to handle 11 Boeing 737-400s and 2 Boeing 767-300ERs, and expansion of the terminal. Currently the airport has a secondary taxiway beside having a primary taxiway to the south of the apron. It's to the east of the apron. This taxiway is used to link runway 27 with the apron.

New airport[edit]

The limited availability of land around the airport and overcapacity caused the government to plan to relocate the airport to Temon in Kulon Progo Regency.[2] PT Angkasa Pura I and Yogyakarta provincial government has decided to build the new airport in Kulonprogo (include the airport city). It will be built without central government funding and will be built by joint venture between PT Angkasa Pura I and GVK Group from India with 51 and 49 percent shares, respectively.[3] The new airport can accommodate up to 30 million passengers per year and expected to boost the tourism economy, trade and industry Yogyakarta. It will be completed in 2019 and fully operated beginning in 2020.
