Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

What to Expect

Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is a large sprawling complex with two older terminals (T1 and T2) and one new terminal (T3), all connected by a free SkyTrain. T1 has three sub-terminals (A, B and C) and primarily serves domestic flights. T2 also has three sub-terminals (D, E and F) and serves both domestic and international flights. The ultra-modern T3 serves both domestic and international flights. All three terminals offer a range of dining and shopping options, though T3 has the largest selection of retail stores. WiFi is available to help pass the time. Additional comfort—including showers—can be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

Travellers report that airport staff and security are generally tolerant of overnight sleepers, and that the terminals feel safe. The new T3 is highlighted as having the best sleep options and plenty of comfortable, sleep friendly furniture. Reviews about the other terminals are mixed, with some warnings about uncomfortable furniture, though travellers have successfully found reasonable sleeping spots in all three terminals. Cold air conditioning is an oft-mentioned sleep hindrance, so consider bringing an extra layer and/or travel blanket. Eyeshade and earplugs/noise-cancelling headphones may also come in handy. For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel in the airport’s T2 and several others nearby. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

Porters have been known to gouge passengers with hefty fees and/or demands for large tips. Luggage trolleys, if you can find one, are free to use.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
