Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, also referred to as Cengkareng Airport, is located on the Indonesian island of Java, approximately 20 kilometres west of Jakarta.
The airport is named after Soekarno, the first president of Indonesia and his vice-president, Mohammad Hatta. Ranked as one of the busiest airports in Asia, as well as the 12th busiest airport in the world, a major expansion project is currently taking place at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. This work, due to be completed in 2014, will extend the capacity of Jakarta's main airport to 62 million passengers per year.
Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has previously been named amongst the world's most punctual airports and has also been awarded the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
Passengers can enjoy the well-maintained traditional gardens located at various points throughout the terminal buildings, as well as an 18-hole golf course set within the grounds of the airport. A range of onsite facilities are also available, including a new shopping arcade containing a number of specialist retail outlets.
