The Adisucipto International Airport of Yogyakarta is the seventh busiest of Indonesia and has many flights to numerous destinations in Indonesia as well as a few international flights to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
The airport is named after an Indonesian pilot (Adi Sucipto) who died in the independence war with the Dutch. A new airport far away from Jogja is planned for but it will not open until 2020.
Most flights from Adisutjipto International Airport are to Surabaya and to Denpasar Bali but there are many more flights to other destinations as well, most of them by Lion Air. Every day there are flights to 8 destinations from Adisutjipto International Airport. Here are the most popular destinations:
The airport has one runway and two terminals: the new terminal B (opened in August 2015) is located a few hundred meters next to the domestic terminal. Terminal B is spacious and is used for all international flights and for few domestic flights by low-cost carriers. The older, domestic terminal is small and can be quite crowded but the advantage is that you do not need to walk very far from the aircraft to the terminal exit.
The Adisucipto International Airport is located just 6 km east of the city centre on the highway to Solo.
The airport is the only airport in Indonesia with a railway station where commuter trains to the Yogyakarta Tugu central station (conveniently near the Jl. Sosrowijaya tourist centre) and to Solo (Surakarta) will stop. The train to Tugu station will depart about every hour in the day time, last train is at 19:44. The train ticket is only Rp 8000.
Alternatively you can take a bus: air-conditioned TransJogja busses depart in front of the train station to several destinations in Jogja. Take the underpass to get to either the train station or bus stop. One-way ticket to central Jogja is Rp. 4000.
The close proximity to the city center makes a taxi from Adisucipto Airport relatively cheap.
Taxis can be booked at the taxi stand outside the domestic arrivals. Prices are fixed and depend on your destination. Many popular destinations in the city can be reached for about Rp 60.000 to 80.000. You need to pay at the counter then proceed to the taxis and give your receipt to the driver.
Or, a more cheaper option, is to walk outside the airport to the main road (Jalan Solo): cross the railroad track and continue for another 200 meters and turn left. Around the corner several taxis will be waiting and they will use the meter, making a journey into the city cost around Rp 40.000 to 50.000.
