Transportation from Jakarta Soekarno Hatta Airport


Since 2017, the "Soekarno Hatta Airport Rail Link" has been running to the airport . The station is located directly terminals 1 and 2, in the city ending at Sudirman station on the southern edge of the city center. During the day, the interval between connections is between 30 and 60 minutes, with the journey to the city centre taking about 45 minutes. Trains run from 4:20 to 21:50 in the direction from the city to the airport, or from 6:10 to 23:10 in the direction from the airport to the city centre. You can buy a ticket from the ticket machine at the station for Rp 70,000.

The second best option is to use a taxi. In Jakarta, taxi drivers drive according to the meter and prices are set at Rp 7,000, boarding fee and Rp 4,000 for each kilometer. So you should not pay more than Rp 200,000 ( 0 eur 0 eur ) when going from the airport to the center to the National Monument. We recommend Blue Bird Taxi and Express Taxi. It is considerably cheaper with the services of Grab (which took over Uber's services in Southeast Asia in 2018) or GoJek. These mobile apps will come in handy in Indonesia, not only in terms of taxi services, but also for ordering food delivery or other services, for example.

Allow plenty of time when travelling to the airport, as the standard half-hour drive can stretch to an hour and a half due to rush hour traffic.

You can also take advantage of the DAMRI buses that run throughout Jakarta. Services depart every 15-40 minutes and a ticket can be purchased for Rp 40,000-60,000. The service runs from 3am to 9:30pm from the city and until midnight from the airport. For more information, visit the official damri website.
